Trip Around Australia by the Jefferies 1981
 

Part 2 - Queensland, New South Wales & Australian Capital Territory

 

Around Australia Trip 1981  -  Part    1   -   2   -   3  -  4

 

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.

 

All images taken by Max Jefferies or a member of my family, or on our behalf,

and copyright is retained by us in all cases and can only be used for private purposes.

Grand Canyon: A different view

Beautiful photography and great teaching by many of the world's

leading creation researchers and speakers are featured in this

exquisite book, compiled by a man who has been guiding raft trips

through the Grand Canyon since 1980. Dr Henry Morris, Ken Ham,

Dr John Baumgardner and Dr Werner Gitt are just a few of the

people who have contributed to make this book so special.

"I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His* appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.."
