Martin Todd's Picture Gallery.
Janet and Alan Todd, along with their children Martin, Jacqueline, Tracy and Sharon travelled as un-sponsored passengers out to New Zealand in 1974. They ended up in a very small and cramped cabin on "C" deck, right on the water line! Martin recalled that during this journey the ship was not allowed to sail from Capetown, due to a faulty engine.  The Port Authorities would not let the ship sail without the spare part working correctly.

Martin found an old image that he had taken of the Australis whilst it was laid up in Timaru, New Zealand, sometime during 1978.

Many thanks to Martin Todd for his contribution to the site

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.
