Trip Around Australia by the Jefferies 1981
 

Part 3 - 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.

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy

has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you,

who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time... 

Though now you do not see Him*, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory,

receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls."
