Sir Douglas Mawson's incredible spirit and courage is epitomised in the huts still standing today in the hostile environment of Antarctica. Australia's first Antarctic base for scientific and geographical discovery was established in these simple huts, and from them Mawson and his team set out to explore and study the Antarctic landscape, and pioneering the use of wireless communication. Mawson's Huts and Mawson's Huts Historic Site were included in the National Heritage List on 27 January 2005.
