In December (2016) the Minister for the Environment and Energy, the Hon. Josh Frydenberg MP, visited Casey research station to open the new East Wing accommodation, and to meet with expeditioners and learn more about their work in Antarctica. The Minister flew from Hobart to Wilkins Aerodrome and was helicoptered across to Casey for a quick tour, before returning to Australia – the first time such a trip has been completed in one day.
