Anzacs remembered in Antarctica

Anzacs remembered in Antarctica

As Anzac Day dawn services took place across Australia and New Zealand, it was also remembered at the bottom of world, with a ceremony at Scott Base.

But because there is no actual dawn in Antarctica anymore, the small ceremony took place at mid-morning with base staff.

A number of visitors from the US Antarctic base at McMurdo Station were also there to pay their respects.

Following the service in the frosty conditions, those who attended went back inside for a coffee and some Anzac biscuits.

The sun won't make an appearance on the icy continent for the next four months as it sits below the horizon.

The video was shot by Anthony Powell, an Antarctic-based filmmaker and photographer, who directed an award-winning documentary Antarctica: Year on Ice.
