This year’s budget saw $21.6 million allocated to the Australian Antarctic programme. Of this, the Australian Antarctic Division will receive $20.3 million over four years to cover the cost of rising fuel prices and shipping contract costs, providing some welcome relief to our increasingly stretched operational budget. The Mawson’s Huts Foundation will receive $1.3 million to continue the preservation of Mawson’s Hut.
