Summary
  • Mawsons Huts - AAE (Australian Antarctic Expedition 1911-1914) at Boat Harbour - Cape Denison - Commonwealth Bay (Adelie Land) - Antarctic. December 2007.I think that the brighter wood on the roof indicates that the original battered and weather-worn wood has been replaced. Now the policy seems to be conserve what is there if possible rather than replace. Inside the Huts it is quite messy with the wind, ice and snow having played havoc over the years. Of course this being the part of the planet where winds are the strongest and hence worst - known as katabatic - these winds rushing down the plateau towards Mawsons Huts at hurricane speed. The winds mostly appear without warning and often in the mornings. When the BANZARE team visited Mawsons Huts in January, 1931 they were referred to as the huts or old huts - nothing too illustrious.Outside too there a bit of old junk - tins, wood, wire etc. The big advantage for Sir Douglas Mawson was the Boat Harbour and where the Huts are positioned they are in close proximity to the coast of Antarctica.
