For many years, the Antarctic Division has commonly
made available a berth on one of the round-trip
voyages during a season to be occupied by a member
of the ANARE Club. This chance in a lifetime trip enables a Club member to

representative a chance to travel south to broaden
their Antarctic experience, and more importantly to

It will be necessary for the successful candidate to
pass the rigorous medical assessment required of all
expeditioners. As a precaution we will select a
second candidate in case our first choice does not
pass the assessment.
