Tom Melville: [00:00:00] Hello, I'm Tom Melville. Welcome to Voice of Real Australia. Each episode we bring you people, places and perspectives from beyond the big cities. This week, producer Laura Corrigan takes us aboard the Aurora Australis, the retired Antarctic ice breaker. It was built at Carrington Slipways just north of Newcastle and is the only Australian made icebreaker. During its 30 years of service it's made hundreds of voyages, taking thousands of Australians to Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. Now, though, the ship is moored in Hobart with an uncertain future.
