Wayne Jackson's Picture Gallery.
Wayne Jackson boarded the Australis in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on June 16th, and got off in Sydney, Australia on July 27th 1977. Twice during the voyage passengers were told that the course had been changed, plus the engine broke down half way across the Indian Ocean. The crew scrambled to scrounge parts from the second engine!

I have included Waynes E-Mail address below the photos, just in case you recognise yourself/anyone in the pictures below, or were on the same voyage. He would welcome your contact, if you would like to chat to him about the events etc... on the ship back then.

    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.

    Warm regards.

    Ken.
