Introduction
The ANARE Club was founded in 1951 by veterans of the first Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE). Our emblem is the beautiful Emperor penguin on a map of Antarctica. Currently we have over 700 members with branches in most Australian capital cities. 

We publish our Club journal, Aurora, four times a year and maintain a contemporary and dynamic website and Club email list to keep members informed of items of ANARE Club and general Antarctic interest. 

Membership is open to anyone who has travelled to Antarctica or sub-Antarctic regions with the Australian Antarctic Program, previously called ANARE (Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions), or international Antarctic programs. Interested members of the public can become Subscribers to the Club journal - Aurora. Also as Subscriber Members they can attend 'Members only' functions.

Aims of the Club
The aims of the ANARE Club are to:
  • Provide a common contact point for ANARE and Australian Antarctic expeditioners.
  • Keep members in touch through ANARE Club activities, e.g. Midwinter dinners and various social events.
  • Foster relationships with the Australian Antarctic Division and current expeditioners.
  • Inform Club members of news, events and other items of Antarctic and sub-Antarctic interest.
  • Preserve ANARE history.
  • Promote interest in Antarctic and sub-Antarctic issues to the general public.
