  1. Hi Dave I connected to this thread while I was looking for information on the SS Oriana. I was a “ten pound pom” who sailed from Southampton to Australia in January 1962. It sounds as though I was on the same voyage as your parents. Interesting also is the fact that I selected Brisbane as my final destination. I am now spending more time and energy reflecting on the past than contemplating the future and will be writing a memoir about the three crucial years of my life that I spent “ Downunder” including the amazing voyage on the good ship Oriana. Let me know if you want to chat about my voyage and post voyage experiences including the brief time that I spent at the reception camp on Kangaroo Point …maybe your parents spent some time there as well. .
