Tours depart from outside Macq01 Hotel

Join the staff from the Australian Antarctic Division on a guided walk through the new waterfront instillations. These specially designed installations resemble shipping containers and act as exhibition spaces to present displays, objects and augmented reality. Join us for an interpretive walk along the Hobart waterfront from Mac01 to Brooke St Pier to Mawson Place and take a step in the shoes of an expeditioner and scientist in Antarctica.
