RSV Nuyina Celebrations

Looking to cool down this summer? Make sure you visit TMAG with some special Antarctic elements on display as part of the celebrations greeting the arrival in Hobart of the RSV Nuyina – Australia’s newest icebreaker.

You can see more information in the Central Gallery about this extraordinary ship; view the builder’s model or Brickman’s extraordinary LEGO model in our Islands to Ice Gallery.

Complete a giant table jigsaw of the Nuyina while you listen to sound artist Philip Samartzis’s amazing soundscape of the icy continent, recorded in and around Australia’s Davis Station complete with sounds of elephant seals and Adélie penguins. We even have some 3D icebergs!
