Management Plan

Mawson’s Huts Historic Site contains the remains of the base established at Cape Denison, Antarctica, in 1912–1913 by Sir Douglas Mawson’s Australasian Antarctic Expedition (including two intact timber huts and two huts that are now standing ruins). The Minister for the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities and the Australian Antarctic Division of the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities made a management plan for 2007–2012, to protect and manage the site’s Commonwealth Heritage and National Heritage values. This plan has recently been reviewed and revised and a new plan is now available:
