The Mawson’s Huts Foundation is a not-forprofit charity established in 1997 to conserve
the historic wooden huts at Cape Denison,
East Antarctica, which were used for two
years by the Australasian Antarctic Expedition
of 1911-14 led by Douglas Mawson.
Since then it has funded and organised
13 major expeditions to Mawson’s Huts to
carry out conservation and maintenance
work on the historic buildings, which it does
in partnership with the Australian Antarctic
Division (AAD).
To assist with fund raising and helping to
promote Mawson’s story the Foundation
built and operates the Mawson’s Huts
Replica Museum on the Hobart waterfront.
It was awarded a Silver Medal in the 2017
Tasmanian Tourism Awards and is rated by
www.tripadvisor as the No. 1 musem
in Hobart and in the top 25 museums in
the South Pacific.
The Foundation also initiated the very
successful, award-winning Australian
Antarctic Festival in 2016, which is held
every two years.
