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.
