The British Antarctic Expedition 1907-09, otherwise known as the Nimrod Expedition, was the first of three expeditions to the Antarctic led by Ernest Shackleton.

Its main target, among a range of geographical and scientific objectives, was to be first to the South Pole. This was not attained, but the expeditions southern march reached a farthest south latitude of 88 23 S, just 97.5 nautical miles (180.6 km- 112.2 mi) from the pole. This was by far the longest southern polar journey to that date and a record convergence on either Pole.

A separate group led by Welsh Australian geology professor Edgeworth David reached the estimated location of the South Magnetic Pole, and the expedition also achieved the first ascent of Mount Erebus, Antarcticas second highest volcano.
