Warwick Barnes’ usual job is as the co-ordinator of the Australian Antarctic Division’s web sites, both internal and external. Warwick was given the opportunity to participate on Voyage 5 of the 2004–05 season aboard the Aurora Australis.

After looking after the Antarctic Division’s web cameras from the Kingston (Australia) end for the past two years he saw how they work from the Antarctic end. Amongst a pretty extensive work program, Warwick sent back diary entries providing a glimpse of his time on the Aurora Australis and at Mawson, Casey and Macquarie Island stations.
