Festival Partners information
The Mawson’s Huts Foundation would like to acknowledge the important support given to the Australian Antarctic Festival by the Tasmanian Government through Events Tasmania, by the City of Hobart and by Chimu Adventures, representing the Antarctic tourism sector. Without these foundation partners, the festival could not have taken shape.
We thank the Australian Antarctic Division for contributing resources for the Festival and acknowledge contributions made by the Australian Defence Force, IMAS, CSIRO, P&O Maritime, Clennett’s Mitre 10, the Tasmanian Polar Network, the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery and numerous organisations and individuals.
Funding is provided by special grants from Events Tasmania, the Hobart City Council and Chimu Adventures, the Foundation’s major sponsor and one of Australia’s leading Antarctic tour companies which is developing closer links with Hobart. In addition, members of the Tasmanian Polar Network have given their backing to the Festival in many ways to ensure its success. Their support is enthusiastic and generous.
