Informing the public about the Australian Antarctic Division's science and operations is important to us and we recognise that the media play a crucial role in shaping public attitudes to the region.

The Australian Antarctic Division (AAD) offers opportunities for media representatives to travel to Antarctica during the polar summer to report on research activities on station, in the field and the Southern Ocean.

Supporting journalists

The AAD media team can assist journalists with resources to research stories, arrange interviews with experts and provide broadcast quality footage and images. Journalists are welcome to arrange to visit the AAD offices and laboratories in Kingston.
