During this voyage, Mawson was relieved; men aircraft and equipment were landed at Mawson to undertake mapping ang geological survey of portion of the Prince Charles Mountains from an advanced base at Moore Pyramid during the summer; men, vehicles and equipment were placed on the Amery Ice Shelf to undertake a summer glaciological traverse; and land a geologist at Davis for summer studies of the Vestfold Hills an recover a physicist from Davis. The voyage also made a diversion to Casey to recover 19 men from the wintering party, so that Nella Dan would have enough accommodation to embark the EPF party from Dumont d"Urville before ice conditions closed the season. Three helicopters suffered some electrolytic corrosion following a very rough passage to Antarctica.
