June Nicholl's Picture Gallery.
Betty and Harry Howarth, along with their daughter June, travelled to Australia. Her family left Southampton on the 6th. of February, 1973. They didn't have a personal camera with them, but did buy three official pictures from the photographer's shop.

June told me that the first photo is of her mother Betty with the Captain, the second photo is of herself along with her parents and another lady (who's name she cannot remember after all this time!). The last picture is of her parents holding two babies, who were christened on board the S. S. Australis, they would be about 36 years old now!

Beneath the photos there are a couple of PDF files that June has kindly sent me. They are of:

1. A "crossing the line" certificate.

2. Visa page showing passage to Australia on the ship.

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.
