Aurora Australis icebreaker webcam

After 10 years of service in the harsh conditions, the Aurora Australis bow webcam has broken. We’re planning to fit a replacement in January 2019. We’re sorry that this page will display only the stern and port images until then.

The icebreaker Aurora Australis is Australia’s Antarctic research and resupply flagship. The daily position of the ship is available from the voyage sitreps page.

The webcam only updates during the shipping season, which generally runs from October to April.
