A Conversation with Tim Jarvis

A Conversation with Tim Jarvis

On Wednesday February 28, Year 12 students Vivian Dao and Emily Waters accompanied by Debra Murray attended a CEDA Trustee session hosted at Adelaide University to listen to Tim Jarvis talk about the lessons he learnt through his expedition following Shackleton’s journey out of Antarctica.

Tim had an amazing story to tell as he had undertaken and re-enacted two of the harshest and most extreme Antarctic adventures – Douglas Mawson and Ernest Shackleton’s survival journeys – choosing to do them in the original clothing, with the same gear used a century ago.

Jarvis recreated Sir Ernest Shackleton’s incredible Antarctic survival journey of 1916. In an open boat not much bigger than a rowboat, using only a chronometer for navigation and wearing the barely adequate clothing of 100 years ago, Jarvis and five other men sailed 1200 kilometres across the Southern Ocean from Elephant Island to South Georgia. Then Jarvis and two others crossed the island’s precipitous mountains, mostly using the gear available to Shackleton in 1916. This historical re-enactment, completed in 2013, earned Tim Jarvis the Australian Geographic Society’s Adventurer of the Year Award.
