Hobart City Deal

Antarctic and Science Precinct at Macquarie Point

The Australian and Tasmanian Governments have commenced the development of a business case for the creation of a state-of-the-art Antarctic and Science Precinct at Macquarie Point.

The first phase, a Strategic Options Assessment, aims to identify and inform decision making around the proposed anchor tenants. A second phase of work will be undertaken to examine the preferred precinct option in more detail.

The Precinct will build on our significant investments in Antarctic infrastructure, including the Australian Government's $1.9 billion icebreaker, RSV Nuyina, due to arrive in 2021.
