Rob and his family moved to New Zealand in 1962, but his mother got homesick and so they moved back to Holland in 1970. Rob was just 10 years old when they travelled on the Australis back to the Netherlands. The ship was then on voyage 24, northbound, and called into Acapulco, Mexico before going through the Panama Canal, and then stopping at Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

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.
