Simon Whittle's Picture Gallery.
Simon Whittle and his family travelled on the Australis back from Sydney in 1975. This is the only info. he gave regarding his trip on the ship, but I can add that the photos of the ships black smoke from the funnel brings back a lot of memories for me ie: having to watch where you stood up on deck, otherwise you would end up with filthy clothes. I also remember the time in late `76 when Chandris brought a company in to try and stop the smoke and soot. They did succeed for a while, but it wasn't long before the smoke was billowing out once again!

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.
