douglas mawson tries his best

by zoe


Douglas Mawson was an Antarctic explorer from Australia.

His ship was called the s.y Aurora (steam yacht).

Douglas Mawson was on the $100 not from 1984 to 1991.

Mawsons hut is still down in Antarctica.


The expiedition of 1911 to 1914 aimed to see if a man could survive in Antarctica.

I dont think Mawson was prepared because he didnt bring enough food for him and his companions to survive.

he brought with him 17 explorers, 50 sheep, some dogs and a load of coal.
