Investigator arrives in Hobart tomorrow!


8 September 2014

CSIRO building in Hobart

Come down to our Hobart site tomorrow and greet the ship.

The long wait is over. We’ve cleared a spot at the wharf for the arrival of Investigator into Hobart tomorrow morning and I can tell you we’re excited!

We’re expecting the ship at the wharf of our Hobart site at 10am.

If you’re in Hobart, come down and help celebrate Investigator’s arrival. Plus, we have a competition and prizes:

Send us your best snap of Investigator as it comes into Hobart harbour for a chance to win a LEGO model of the ship AND a tour of Investigator for you and three friends later this year. Use #RVInvestigator when posting your image to Twitter or Facebook, or email it directly to us at by 5pm Tuesday 9 September. Winners will be announced Wednesday at midday. Creative selfies with Investigator are highly encouraged.

If you’re not in Hobart, don’t fret, you can follow all the action on Twitter at #RVInvestigator as we live-tweet the arrival. A few us will be going out to greet Investigator in a small flotilla!

And just to whet your appetite, we captured Investigator on the way here as it went round the south west corner of Western Australia a few days ago:
