Scott Base has been New Zealand's permanent base in Antarctica since 1959. The Base provides services and accommodation for the many research parties and groups who visit Antarctica during the summer. The Base is located on Ross Island in the Ross Sea region of Antarctica. Ross Island is 3932 km (2114 nautical miles) from Christchurch New Zealand and 1500 km from the South Pole. The Antarctic mainland is 70 km across McMurdo Sound from Scott Base. The closest neighbour to Scott Base is the American base, McMurdo Station, a 3km walk over the hill.
