  • Retro TV- Classic shows we used to love
    Retro TV- Classic shows we used to love When TV entered the entertainment arena back in 1948 in America, then arrived on the doorstep of Australia in the 1950’s, life as we used to know it changed considerably. Not only did it bring a variety of entertainment into the lounge room, it took people to places they had only read and dreamed about.

  • Mawson's Huts Foundation
    Mawson's Huts Foundation

    The Mawson's Huts Foundation has been established to conserve the unique, historical buildings known as Mawson's Huts, base for one of the most significant expeditions in Antarctic history. Sir Douglas Mawson, a geologist, who led the Australiasion Antarctic Expedition of 1911, landed a party of 18 at Cape Denison on Commonwealth Bay in January, 1912, and remained there until December 1913. The site was not visited again until Mawson returned in 1931 with the British, Australian and New Zealand Antarctic Research Expedition and then not again until the 1950's. Only a concerted public campaign would save and conserve this historic site for all Australians, and the Mawson's Huts Foundation was formed in 1996 for this purpose. The Foundation has been involved with five conservation expeditions to Cape Denison, working in partnership with the Australian Government through the Minister for Environment and Heritage, the Australian Antarctic Division and the Australian Heritage Division.

    Formed in 1996, the Foundation is raising funds from the Australian Government and corporate and private sponsors to ensure that this vital part of Australia's Antarctic heritage remains intact. The Mawson's Huts Historic Site consists of the main hut, magnetograph house, the transit hut, the ruined absolute magnetic hut and a memorial cross to Ninnis and Mertz, along with a plaque recording the territorial claim Mawson made on his return for one night in 1931.

    The Cape Denison site is also recognised internationally under the Antarctic Treaty as a Historic Site and Monument, an Antarctic Specially Protected Area and an Antarctic Specially Managed Area. It is also inscribed on both the National Heritage and Commonwealth Heritage registers. courtesy Allen & Unwin
