I was inspired to create this site after visiting Ken Ironside's excellent site all about Chandris Lines ss.Australis. S.S. Australis Homepage
I thought what a fun thing to do! Well it is fun now it is finished but it has taken hours of frustration & wanting to chop up the computer! Nothing ever seems to work as it should. Ken I salute your expertise & thank you for keeping me sane with the odd phone call!
Another source of inspiration has been Steve Mulliss's also excellent site, about his voyages on the Australis. Steve's S. S. Australis Travel Page
Thank you Steve for being my e-mate, for all your ideas, supportive emails, and constant encouragement, you really have been a great help.
I must also thank Maggy Volovinis for supplying me with all the latest news about the ships & information about some of the crew. She has kept in touch with so many people over the years. Her email: email@example.com
