Antarctic Tasmania

About us

Antarctic Tasmania is a dedicated business unit of the Department of State Growth. The unit was established to fulfil the Tasmanian government’s commitment to the international Antarctic sector and to support this sector’s growth.

Hobart’s infrastructure, services and proximity to Antarctica and the Southern Ocean makes the city the perfect Antarctic Gateway.  Hobart is also an international centre of Antarctic and Southern Ocean expertise and is home to many of the sector’s scientists, research facilities and international Antarctic secretariats.
