Event Details

Come and see where Sir Douglas Mawson met his expedition members at Hadley’s Orient Hotel in Hobart before he set sail on the Australasian Antarctic Expedition (1911-1914). Imagine stepping back in time and witnessing this important gathering.

While in this space at Hadley’s, use your smartphone or tablet to scan the QR code to listen to a new audio story about the expedition members’ lunch and Mawson’s Antarctic achievements. You can bring your headphones or borrow some for free from Reception at Hadley’s. Like a radio drama, the audio experience brings the story to life, with narration by actor Ben Winspear and custom soundscapes by Tasmanian musicians Emily Sheppard and Yyan Ng.
