Antarctic Tasmania

Tasmanian Antarctic Gateway Strategy

The Tasmanian Antarctic Gateway Strategy builds on Tasmania’s reputation as the gateway to east Antarctica and the Southern Ocean by supporting and harnessing opportunities arising from investment by Australia and other countries in Antarctic science and operations.

Through the Tasmanian Antarctic Gateway Strategy we will grow Tasmania’s role as an international centre for excellence for Antarctic, Southern Ocean and climate research.

Tasmania is already the flagship for Australia as a globally-recognised home of international Antarctic diplomacy, logistics and operational support, and science services. The Tasmanian Antarctic Gateway Strategy will strengthen Tasmania’s community of research scientists, drive growth in our support and logistics capability, and attract more international resupply and research visits from nations involved in the Antarctic region.

The Tasmanian Antarctic Gateway Strategy will help make Tasmania the world’s Antarctic gateway of choice.
