Abstract

This paper describes the historical and contemporary associations between Hobart (Tasmania, Australia) and Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. This association is traced from the sealing and whaling industry, through early exploration and scientific expeditions, to contemporary issues of institutional and educational development and tourism. It is argued that this polar link has placed Hobart at the centre of some important Antarctic and Southern Ocean developments.
