John Newton's Picture Gallery.
John Newton sailed on the Australis, voyage 13 southbound from Southampton down the African coast to Cape Town, South Africa, in 1968. He clearly remembers the fire on board and the resulting mutiny in Cape Town, because the captain threatened to take the ship back out to sea without adequate repairs. All the waiters marched off to protest on the dock, some passengers were flown on to Australia, but he stayed on the ship. John and his family stayed in port for 5 days whilst she was repaired, this was quite an adventure for a 15 year old. The ship finally sailed to Fremantle, Western Australia. A few years later John introduced his wife to this wonderful ship, they honeymooned on the Australis in 1975. They sailed northbound on voyage 51, from Fremantle via the Panama Canal. John has many fond memories of the Australis, below are a few pictures of himself and his wife during his second trip on the ship, sometime in October 1975.
