Husky cuddles for Mandurah residents at Shackleton exhibition

HUSKY cuddles will be the perfect cure for the winter blues in Mandurah this weekend.

The Mandurah Community Museum is hosting the Shackleton: Escape From Antarctica on Saturday from 11am to 2pm.

The City of Mandurah has partnered with the Western Australia Sleddog Sports Association to bring the dogs to the Museum in the ‘Husky Zone’.

Attendees will be able to see the dogs working in a team and learn more about them.

This exhibition runs more than 100 years after Sir Ernest Shackleton explored Antarctica.

His survival story is being displayed in a new panel exhibition on tour from the Australian Maritime Museum.

The exhibition invites visitors to walk in his footsteps and discover his heroic voyage of survival.

The display Shackleton: Escape from Antarctica opens at Mandurah Community Museum on August 3.

It brings together first hand accounts and dramatic images by official expedition photographer Australian Frank Hurley to tell the story of Shackleton’s Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1914-17 and his bid to stay alive.

The exhibition runs until August 31 and entry is free.
