It’s one of the greatest survival stories of all time and now, over 100 years later, a new travelling panel display invites visitors to walk in the footsteps of famous Antarctic explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton and discover his epic voyage of survival.

Shackleton: Escape from Antarctica, brings together first-hand accounts and dramatic images by official expedition photographer Australian Frank Hurley to tell the compelling story of Shackleton’s Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1914-17 and his bid to stay alive. 

On tour from the Australian National Maritime Museum, Shackleton: Escape from Antarctica is on display at Albany’s Historic Whaling Station from 22nd June to 12th August, and is included within the entry ticket.
