Join us in September 2019 for a very special evening to commemorate the 65th anniversary of the establishment of Mawson Station in 1954. Meet surviving members of some of the early wintering parties together with associated support personnel, including ship and air crews.

There will be dinner, speakers, a photographic exhibition, archival film clips screened, sales of early and modern prints of the Station, veterans, the ice, the huskies, wildlife, as well as commemorative memorabilia with a raffle and an auction. The event will be open to all ANARE Club members and non-members, expeditioners and anyone interested in the Antarctic and sub-Antarctic. A special invitation is extended to veterans from 1954 -1965 to attend and recount their experiences.

Dinner will be a two-course meal (main and dessert) with drinks at bar prices. There will be a free brochure celebrating the history from the establishment of our first base on the Antarctic continent in 1954 to the present day.

COST: ANARE Club Members: $90; Non-Members: $95

Don't miss out on the fun, come along with your mates & families & join us in celebrating ANARE, Mawson Station, the Prince Charles Mountains survey work, the exploration & mapping, traverses, the science, the dogs, wildlife, Cinderella, midwinter, the old movies, home brews & much more.
