Jeroen Van Der Beek's Picture Gallery
Jeroen Van Der Beek has been checking out my website for a number of years now. He travelled on the Australis, as a 10 year old, leaving Auckland on December 31, 1973. Jeroen is not sure of the voyage number anymore, but believed it to be around number 40 or thereabouts.

The photos were taken at:

1 & 2. Acapulco, Mexico January 1974

3. Australis docked in Sydney, January 1974

4. Mid Pacific, January 1974

5. Suva in Fiji (Jeroen is on the left with his brother)where they had just been duty free shopping.

Welcome all visitors to the S.S. Australis Website, which has now been online since 1998!

I will continue to update the site if I receive a new story, or if you have interesting photos taken on the ship during your voyage on either the southbound, northbound, or on one of the South Pacific cruises. We used to do those trips several times a year from Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland (New Zealand).

I am deeply moved by the interest and wonderful contributions from the numerous passengers and crew over many years.
