Visitor Info

IAC Gift Store

We’re confident that the memories you make here will last a lifetime. But why take anything to chance? Take a little piece of Antarctica home with you in the shape of a gift, souvenir and memento. 

At our retail store you’ll discover a wide range of not-so-hidden treasures. Be it exciting gifts for friends and family, or a special keepsake for you, there’s always something super-cool or heart-warming to be found on the shelves. 

The IAC Gift Store is open from 9am until 4.30pm Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.


As all good explorers know, you need to keep your engine fuelled up to have the energy necessary to move from point A to B. With all the amazing points in our centre you’ll certainly need some delectable fuel to sustain the journey.

Our popular café is open daily from 9am until 4:30pm, with indoor and outdoor seating areas, the focus of this café is on delicious, fresh, seasonal food served in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Here you’ll find a range of tasty menu options to fuel your explorations. We pride ourselves on our handcrafted baked goods and, with a number of gluten and dairy-free options, there’s something for everyone (excluding the penguins and huskies – they’ve got their own special diets).


There are toilets available at the entrance to the attraction as well as in the attraction next to the 4D exit for your convenience.

These are also wheelchair accessible and have baby changing facilities.


We are wheelchair accessible.

We have wheel chair lifts to access our meeting rooms on the mezzanine floor and in the attraction to gain access to the Penguin viewing area. Disabled access is provided throughout the attraction.

Travelling in the Hägglund requires that you are able to board and disembark unassisted.

If travelling by car there are 3 designated accessible parking spaces available for your use at the entrance.
