arriving in Hobart from a foreign country and going through immigrationWiki says that currently there is only one way you can arrive in Hobart from some other 'country' - although it isn't a country - and that's Antarctica.
has anyone ever done this? Gone to Antarctica and then turned up in Hobart, and gone through Aussie immigration?

2Jetstar calls itself as going to Hobart International Airport.
But am sure they can accommodate the OP with prior notice. Telling them you don't have a passport and you are not an Aust Citizen too.

3Quite a few ships arrive in Hobart with foreign passengers on board- so there must be a passport control process in place.

4Wiki also says that there was formerly a New Zealand flight, presumably some foreign passport holders must have taken that.

10Of course there are customs, immigration & quarantine at Hobart's harbour. However the only people likely to have come from another country via Antarctica would be intrepid yachting types, & possibly active members of Greenpeace & Sea Shepherd.
I assume that since there are no immigration controls on Antarctica you would be treated as having come from the last recognised country you visited.

12It was Air NZ that did HBA > AKL.
There will be immi at the int shipping term but not at tge airport if no special flight expected.
Only Jetstar does it tho, none of the other airlines do it.
Unless the OP us part of a scientific group, I dont think it will work. As the Dr Dog says, no.
If no Jetstar flight, probablly no Aust Govt employee will be there.

14I went to New Zealand with my parents back in 1988 and we flew direct from Hobart to Christchurch on Air New Zealand.
