How do I get to Tasmania?

Antarctic Link

Hobart is Australia's national Antarctic base, site of the Australian Antarctic Division's headquarters and home port for our Antarctic supply ships. Through the exciting interactive displays at Antarctic Adventure in Salamanca Square; in the rich collection of Antarctic memorabilia in the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery and our Maritime Museum; and at historic sites such as Hadleys Hotel in Murray Street, where Roald Amundsen stayed before his successful journey to the South Pole in 1912, or Franklin Square, you'll learn the stories behind the 1898-1900 Antarctic Expedition, the first to spend the winter on the ice.
