The Australian Antarctic Division operates webcams at its four permanent stations: on the Antarctic continent at Mawson, Casey and Davis, and on sub-Antarctic Macquarie Island.
The webcam on the icebreaker Aurora Australis operates when the ship is on hire to the Division. In addition, the krill cam gives an insight into life in the Division’s marine research aquarium where scientists study the the physiology, behaviour and reproduction of krill.

Weather data is collected by automatic weather stations operated by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology and AAD personnel at the stations. This data is also held by the Australian Antarctic Data Centre.
Weather data is also available for Dome A — possibly the coldest place on Earth.
