RSV Nuyina arrival events cancelled due to COVID-19
Due to the recently announced Tasmanian COVID-19 lockdown, plans to welcome Australia’s new Antarctic icebreaker, RSV Nuyina have changed.
In line with advice from Tasmanian Public Health, Tasmanians will now no longer be permitted to greet the new ship from the waterfront or out on the River Derwent.
Planned activities at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery and Waterside Pavilion will close for the duration of the lockdown.
The Australian Antarctic Division will share arrival vision and stills on this website as the day unfolds.
