Email at Kingston and the stations

All expeditioners are provided with an AAD email account. It can be used at Kingston and the stations.

The format of the email address is: Firstname.lastname@aad.gov.au.

For example, an expeditioner called Martin Swabble will have the email address martin.swabble@aad.gov.au.

Telephoning the stations

An AAD-owned satellite network, known as ANARESAT, provides telephone access between the stations and from stations to the rest of the world.

Telephones are located in all workplaces. They are also located in the bedrooms of all main accommodation areas, except for one accommodation block on Macquarie Island. This block is served by one phone room.

To call a station from Australia:

  1. If required, dial the access code for the carrier of your choice.
  2. Dial 0011 (international access code).
  3. Dial 672 (country code for Australian Antarctic Territories and Macquarie Island).
  4. Dial the access code for the station:
    • 10 for Davis
    • 11 for Mawson
    • 12 for Casey
    • 13 for Macquarie Island
  5. Dial the four digit extension number at the station.

For example, to call extensions 8857 at Casey, a caller in Australia would dial 0011 672 12 8857.

Extension numbers for the station will be provided by the expeditioner. Callers from outside Australia should substitute 0011 in the above example with the international access code required by their local carrier.
