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.

Many thanks to Wayne Jackson for his contribution to the site.
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.
