International Antarctic Centre
Popular on rainy days with visitors of all ages, the International Antarctic Centre provides an exciting and interactive experience of Antarctica (without the long flight even further south). Highlights include a snow and ice experience, Antarctic storm, 4D Happy Feet movie, penguin encounter (the centre is home to rescued Little Blue penguins) and for anyone wanting to travel as the scientists do across pack ice, the bone-jiggling Hagglund Ride.
