Mawson's Huts Replica - Hobart, Australia

The Mawsons Hut's Foundation have created a replica of Mawson's Huts on the harbour front in Hobart, Australia. It was officially opened to tourists on December 2, 2013. Australia Post made this special postmark to commemorate the occasion.

Mawson's Huts are a collection of buildings used by the Australian Antarctic Expedition of 1911-14, located at Cape Denison on Commonwealth Bay. For years now, work has been on-going to restore and maintain the huts which are seen as an important part of Australia's Antarctic heritage.
