There really are four wheel drives in Antarctica. This 4x4 utility and the front end loaders (below) are working near an Australian base.
(right, Honda `Big Reds') are another form of local transport.
These are pictured at Crooked Lake in the Vestfold Hills
near Davis Base.
Trajer Ridge (right), also in the Vestfold Hills.
Sir Hubert Wilkin's Cairn (right)
at Walkabout Rocks marks the landing place of
one of the first explorers to this area.
The flag is the original from his ship the Wyatt Earp
and the Walkabout Magazine being held up
was left here by him.
Australian Antarctic territory covers 42% of Antarctica (45E - 136E and 142E to 160E). Australia has three main bases, Casey, Davis and Mawson in order from east to west.
