Prepare to be enchanted by the allure of the Antarctic as we invite you to the Mawson's Huts Foundation Gala!

Join us for an evening including a three-course sit- down dinner and open bar. With special musical guest and keynote speaker Alice Giles. Alice is a world class harpist , Australian Antarctic Arts Fellow and the granddaughter of Cecil Madigan one of Mawson's men!

There will also be a live and silent auction where every bid is a step towards preserving history and protecting our planet's fragile Antarctic heritage, with all proceeds going to the Mawson's Huts Foundation. The auction will include a cruise for two to Antarctica leaving from Hobart that includes visiting the Huts at Cape Denison, luxury flights over Antarctica, and many more amazing items.

Your presence will not only make this gala unforgettable but will also contribute to a legacy of conservation and exploration.

A winter event not to be missed, so save the date and join us for a night of giving, laughter and connection.
