Winterovers from Australia

Eighteen people (at least) from Australia have wintered...starting way back in 1966...then Barry Woodberry came down on assignment with the US National Bureau of Standards. A few years later in 1981, met guy Graeme Currie managed to get hired by Paramus and became #2. The first woman was Julienne Harnett in 2004, followed by Jessica Dempsey in 2005. And the 2008/2018 physician Malcolm Arnold has also wintered at Mawson more than once.

Of course the tragic note here is the fact that Rodney Marks died during the 2000 winter.
