Mawson Station, AAT

Australia's Mawson research station, named after explorer Douglas Mawson, is the oldest continuously operated research station below the Antarctic circle. The postmark date is 20 Feb 2016 and after looking at the AAD shipping schedule I see that this was the day the Aurora Australis arrived to resupply the base. The only time the station is accessible by sea is during February and March.
