I enjoyed that. Thanks for sharing!

Malverne Star bikes seemed to be the popular bike Down Under back then. Any idea of who they were? That picture of that tiny girl, Billie Samuels, leaving to ride from Sydney to Melbourne is especially good...

Great photos. Reminds me of where I live in Queensland now - nothings changed. Oooh, excuse me, I've just got to go outside and shoo away all those kangaroos.
