on the 2 of December 1911 sent sail to map the cost of Antarctica, he went with Ernest Shackleton Australasian Antarctic explanation.
they went from Hobart to macquarie island purpose to communicate with Australia. they built ed a hut in 240km/h wind, and it is still there today.
mawson set out with a team of three and huskies, they had mapped there journey already. 1 member fell down a hole and toke the food down with him.
they keapt on going but they had ran out of food so the only option was to kill there huskies but they ate them and got really sick because huskies are posianess, sadly douglas mawson had to travel his selves sick because his team mate died.
so douglas got to the house but the ship left to go back because it was going into winter so douglas had to stay.
douglas had to stay for a other year because it was to dangerous to go so him and a couple of mates stay there and worked on Antarctica.
