Scott Base, Ross Island, Antarctica

New Zealand's Scott Base was built on Ross Island in McMurdo Sound, Antarctica, in support of the Trans Antarctic Expedition and International Geophysical Year of 1956-1959. The original intention was for the base to be occupied for just a few years, but in recognition of the value of ongoing Antarctic research the base was gradually enlarged and modernised in a rebuilding programme that began in 1976.

Today, Scott Base remains at the forefront of New Zealand's Antarctic scientific research programme and accommodates up to 85 scientists and support staff over its busy summer season.

As part of a refurbishment programme in 2005, Antarctica New Zealand purchased a number of New Zealand photographs for Scott Base including six landscape and coastal scenes from Harley Betts Photography. These have been erected in various parts of the Base to provide staff with reminders of New Zealand and also to showcase New Zealand to visitors from other countries.
