  • This is the replica of Antarctica's Mawsons Hut, great to see how they lived and worked in Antarctica, don't be shocked, its very small to see, not a lot but simply the true replica in it's size and a...  more »
  • Great to view in real life what these explorers had to live with at this destination. Many items of interest to ponder in the location.  more »
  • We were all totally absorbed in the history of this remarkable man and the equally amazing people who accompanied him. Allow at least two hours as there is much to read and take in.  more »

  • A very worthwhile place to visit. While it is not a massive place, you get to experience a bit of what it must have been like to survive in the Antarctic. Great for adults and kids to see how tough life was for these adventurers.
  • An authentic replica of Mawson' s Hut. There were two very enthusiastic guides there who were available to tell people about the base. One of them had actually been to the real Base in Antarctica and she was very eager to relate to me her year long experience there.
  • Awesome insight into all the history. From the beginning, through the 1978 rediscovery & current restoration expeditions. Volunteers on site with lots of info & personal experiences to share. A well curated replica. It's amazing what they took & what they used there. Well worth a visit.
  • Although I feel that the admission costs is too high, certainly worth a visit. Knowledgeable and very friendly volunteer staff that are very willing to share their enthusiasm of the "not so well known" incredible explorer of the Antarctic. Informative and interesting displays, including actual footage taken of the expedition. Allow 2 hours.
  • So many fascinating things in here. Friendly and enthusiastic staff and entrance money goes to maintaining the real huts. Well worth a visit.
