Mawson's Antarctica

Follow in the wake of Australia’s greatest polar pioneer. Departing Tasmania’s glorious south coast, sail to New Zealand’s Auckland Islands to encounter sea lion harems and yellow-eyed penguins. On Campbell Island, delight in royal albatross courting amidst megaherb meadows. Sail south into pack ice, skirt the Mertz Glacier Tongue and enjoy the wildlife-rich waters leading to Commonwealth Bay. Ice and katabatic winds allowing, Mawson’s Hut transports you back to the Heroic Age, where the ghosts of Sir Douglas’s team await. Cruise west along the East Antarctic coastline searching for emperor and Adélie penguins, snow petrels, seals and orcas. Sailing north, drop into Macquarie Island, where vast king penguin rookeries, nesting albatross and elephant seal wallows await.

*This expedition is subject to regulatory approval and only open to Australian and New Zealand residents.

Aurora Expeditions specialises in destinations off the beaten track. So far off in fact, that often there is no track! Aurora Expeditions pioneered ship-based adventures over 28 years ago and remain committed to small, low-impact groups keen to not just see, but experience our range of remote destinations. Travelling in small groups (average 126 passengers) means that, unlike on larger ships, you can join every excursion, getting into the environment and exploring via shore landings, Zodiac cruises, kayaking or diving. With a staff-to-passenger ratio of at least 1:8, means more one-on-one time with your expedition team.

Travel: Set Departure 10 Dec 2021 - 04 Jan 2022 26 Days
