Joy Ruscoe's Picture Gallery.
Joy Ruscoe went back to the UK on the Australis in June 1969 from Perth, Western Australia. She said they had a wonderful fun day "Crossing the line" by the top pool, and received a certificates to prove it.

She recalls the great food and the shows which she went to nearly every evening. Her friends Ann and Jack went on the trip with their four children. One daughter Linda, had to have her appendix out on the ship, and she was given it as a souvernir in a jar, which she showed off to everybody.

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.


Warm regards.
