Australian Antarctic Festival

Australian Antarctic Festival

On Sunday, we went along to the Australian Antarctic Festival:

Hobart, Tasmania is located at 42 degrees south latitude, just 2692 kilometres from the nearest Antarctic continental base.  This location makes the city of Hobart Australia’s Antarctic port and a thriving centre for science, logistics, shipping and crew transport servicing the Southern Ocean, Sub-Antarctic Islands and Antarctica itself.

With a series of exhibitions, open days, school excursions, entertainments and lectures, we want to bring the Antarctic to you over four days.  Join us for a fascinating look at the work we do in the coldest, highest, driest and windiest place on earth.

We had a great time wandering through the exhibitions, climbing into the Hägglunds and the igloos, getting up close to the Aurora Australis, chasing balloons, seeing the Huskies and the pretty painted penguins from little local artists.

One day I might even get to experience the Antarctic in reality.  x
