Trip Around Australia by the
Part 1 - Queensland, New South Wales & Australian Capital Territory
Dad (Gordon) & Mum (Irene), Max & Ann, Matthew & Daniel. The trip took 5 months and covered over 24,000 kms,
mostly on Highway 1. Dad & Mum supplied the car - Holden HQ with a new 202 six engine and a V8 radiator.
Ann & I provided the caravan - 22' Modern with 4 bunks down the back & a swing-down double bed over the front lounge.
We headed north from Perth and did the top-end first as this was the right time to avoid the cyclones and hot weather.
The car had a high-ratio ute diff which pulled the caravan reasonably well (surprisingly!). It also had new pump-up
rear shockies, new set of light-truck radials, two spares for the van and load-levellers for the hitch.
These are selected images scanned from slides from the trip - many photos were damaged by fungus and dumped.
This is a small sample of the photos in our old family album, going back many years. Many of the photos are
scanned from old prints or transparencies (slides). Due to the age and deterioration of some the prints and
transparencies, image quality may be rather poor in some cases.

Take-off! From the Fisher St, Bassendean house.
Just about to go and Dad finds the sump oil plug down the back where he had drained the oil for an oil-change,
but forgot to put the plug back in and add the new oil.
Dad embarrassed. Daniel not happy.

Overnight in Geraldton at Uncle ? home.
The first morning - what a shamble! We did settle into a better routine over the next few days.
In checking the caravan wheels we found one overheating, so had to change the bearing from our spares.

Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the evolution connection
(updated & expanded)
Gary Bates unravels one of popular culture’s enduring and growing phenomena. UFOs,
crop circles, Roswell, alien abductions—it’s all answered! The well researched data leads
the reader inexorably to one conclusion: there is an ‘intergalactic’ battle over the history of
life in the universe, and for the souls of human beings. Its eye-opening insights have
already won souls for Christ. This new edition contains more pictures and a new
chapter about alleged abductions based on extra research Gary has

Victor took us on a tour of wear he worked at the iron ore loading facility in Port Hedland.
We all went fishing in a mangrove creek north of the town.

It took us hours to clean the things, but Linda was very happy.
