  • Nice little museum outlining experiencing of Antarctic explorers. The entry fee was a bit expensive at $15. Although the quality of the museum is quite good, not sure if it's completely worth it. I'd recommend it to people who a preexisting interest into Antarctic exploration, but otherwise it might be best to give it a miss. Leave at least 1hr to properly explore.
  • Only 50 metres from the waterfront, this is a tourist attraction and conservation project designed to teach people about Masons Antarctica expedition. It is a replica of one of the huts constructed by Douglas Mawson and his team on the expedition. On the day we visited, there was a fabulous volunteer in the hut telling us heaps of information and stories about the expedition and she was very interested. $15 for adults, $12 for concession and $5 for children to enter. Money goes to preserving the original huts in Antarctica.
  • Google asked for a review.. I was at the site of this replica, but did not go in.. I probably would have if the admission price was not as high as it is.. The history board on the property and adjacent to the building was pretty interesting to read through.. Loved the sculptures located near the building....
  • Great museum. Adult entry $15 each. Allow about an hour. Really interesting films from the era. You really get a good feel for the Antarctic Explorer's and their amazing achievements in the harshest conditions in the world.
  • Interesting experience! They have alot of info available on it, and the story of the trek and the replica hit set up are very cool.
