Mawson’s Huts Replica Museum stands on the waterfront in Hobart, near the wharf from which Mawson and his men sailed south to The Antarctic, aboard the   SY Aurora on December 2nd,1911

This world class museum gives an insight into the daily lives of the expeditioners who spent two years living and working in the windiest place on Earth – the true  ‘home of the blizzard’

Mawson’s Huts Replica Museum has won numerous awards, most recently Silver in the 2017 Tasmanian Tourism Awards “Cultural Tourism” category. As a not-for-profit charity, our mission is to generate funds for the ongoing conservation of this heritage site – the birthplace of Australia’s Antarctic history.

About the Association

The Australian Coastal Society (ACS) was initiated at the Coast to Coast Conference in Tasmania in 2004. The idea was floated as a means for those interested in coastal matters to communicate between conferences and where possible take resolutions of the conference to appropriate levels of government.

The idea was discussed further at the Coast to Coast Conference in Melbourne in 2006 and it was agreed that Bruce Thom develop a constitution of a company limited by guarantee that would operate on a national basis.

This plan was accomplished and in 2008 at the Coast to Coast Conference in Darwin the constitution was ratified and an Executive appointed. The company received charitable status in 2011.
