A true Australian hero, Douglas Mawson's initial interest in Antarctica was scientific. Whilst others were racing for polar records, Mawson was studying Antarctica and leading the charge on claiming a large chunk of the continent for Australia. On his quest Mawson along with Xavier Mertz and BelgraveNinnis set out to explore and study east of the Mawson's Huts. On what began as a journey of discovery and science ended in Mertz and Ninnis perishing and Mawson surviving extreme conditions against all odds, with next to no food or supplies in the bitter cold of Antarctica. Chimu Adventures in collaboration with the Mawsons Huts Foundation have exclusive access to the only tourist cruise departing Hobart, Australia, in the 2017/18 season, which is scheduled to visit the historic Commonwealth Bay, where the Mawson story truly began.
In the Wake of Mawson, exclusive Chimu charter ex Hobart to East Antarctica. *LIMITED AVAILABILITY - please contact us prior to marketing
