Antarctic adventure centre?

by TheMcAndrews Online Now Jun 14, 2007 at 3:32 AM

Does this centre still operate in Hobart? I've tried unsuccessfully to find any up to date information on it. Our family are travelling to Hobart in August and I would love to take the kids. Thanks

    Looks like it has been closed and the building sold, found the following

    THE new owner of the former Antarctic Adventure building says it will be filled by "something the people of Hobart and Tasmania like". But Tasmanian developer Robert Rockefeller said a decision on its future use was still months away. The state-owned site of the former failed tourism venture was sold to Winrock Investments Pty Ltd for2.4 million."

    There is a very good one in new zealand.
