Foundation: 1948

Mission: To answer the big scientific questions; to understand Antarctica and the Southern Ocean as the engine room for global climate. By studying the region, we can unlock the secrets of the past and predict future changes.

Vision: Australia’s national interests and vision for future engagement in Antarctica are set out in the Australian Antarctic Strategy and 20 Year Action Plan. The Plan recognises Australia’s strong strategic and scientific interests in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean, and aims to build Australia’s role as a leader in Antarctica.
