Bases of Antarctica
There are four bases in Antarctica:
Davis, Casey, Macquarie Island and Mawson.

Davis comes from Captain King Davis, Captain King Davis was born in England, 1884.King Davis is remembered for his unstinting dedication to his task as ship's master, his great success as an Antarctic navigator, and his willingness to stand up for what he believed.

On 15 December 1994, the City of Casey was named in recognition of the significant contributions to the region and to Australia of Lord Richard Gavin Gardiner Casey and Lady Maie Casey who lived on the property ‘Edrington’ in Berwick. Lord Casey was Governor-General of Australia and Lady Casey was an artist, author and aviator.

Macquarie Island

Macquarie island was named after the governor of New South Wales Lachlan Macquarie. Sealers stumbled on a remote Southern Ocean, and because Lachlan was the governor of New South Wales he named the Ocean after himself.


Sir Douglas Mawson is Australia's most famous Antarctic explorer.
Born in Yorkshire, England in 1882. He joined an expedition headed by British explorer Ernest Shackleton.The team was the first to climb to the top of Mount Erebus, Antarctica's active volcano, and the first to reach the magnetic South Pole.
This new frontier had Mawson in its spell and he knew he had to return. In 1911, when he was thirty years of age, he did just that - as leader of the first Australian Expedition to Antarctica. His aim was to map and explore the coastal area of Antarctica closest to Australia.
