Hobart plans polar party
A new five-day festival, Spring THAW (The Hobart Antarctic Week) will be launched in September 2016 to celebrate Tasmania’s Antarctic connections. Initiated by the not-for-profit Mawson’s Hut Foundation, the biennial event will feature photographic and art competitions, an open day on the Aurora Australis and science-linked events aimed at drawing interstate and international audiences. The Hobart City Council approved THAW in September.
