Antonios Exintaris was born in 1938 and raised in Nikea, which is a suburb of Piraeus (the biggest commercial port in Greece and nowadays the biggest in the Mediterranean Sea).
He started his working experience on the Greek passenger ship “Kolokotronis” in 1960, and he finished his career on the Greek cruise ship “Constellation”. On SS Australis he worked
for two and a half years, starting in 1968, crossing the Atlantic from Southampton to the Caribbean, and then to Australia through the Panama Canal, reaching Melbourne, Sydney and Fremantle. He was an "A" grade cook at that time.

Regretfully I am "running down" the S. S. Australis website due to increasing family and health issues.
I may occasionally update the site if I receive a great story/photos from ex-crew only, if it is a new contact.
I know there are still stories to share from ex-crew all over the world, who haven't yet been in touch.
I am deeply moved by the interest and wonderful contributions from numerous passengers and crew over many years.
A HUGE THANK YOU.
