Science facilities

The Australian Antarctic Division maintains laboratories for scientific research at each of its Antarctic stations and at the Australian Antarctic Division head office in Kingston, Tasmania. The facilities are available for use by all researchers who have Australian Antarctic Science Program approved projects.

The science laboratories are well equipped and use of scientific equipment and project space is arranged via a laboratory agreement with the Laboratory Manager.

Specialised equipment, including consumables and chemicals required for approved programs, should be taken to Antarctica by the scientist(s) involved. These items must be returned to Australia on completion of the program. Please contact the Division for more information.
