Australia's Antarctic icebreaker the RSV Aurora Australis

The Aurora Australis is Australia's Antarctic flagship. Designed as a multi-purpose research and resupply ship, the ship has a cruising speed of 13 knots, and accommodates 116 passengers. It is capable of breaking ice up to 1.23 metres thick. The Aurora Australis is due to be replaced in 2020 by a custom-built new icebreaker with an ultra-modern platform to conduct science and resupply Australia's Antarctic and sub-Antarctic stations.
