Arrive Date

Friday, March 27, 1970



I was two and came with older brother and parents...dont remember anything

We arrived in the September 1970 I was two nearly three and my sister Lesley was 4. Came with our parents William and Christine Copping. We have alot of the trip on Super 8 movie which I then got made into CD several years ago.

I arrived in September, 1970. I remember that Port Adelaide was on strike so we all went to Melbourne. We were then put on a train to Adelaide. Have lived here ever since as a film and TV stunt performer.

My husband and 2 children (5 &8) and myself arrived in September 1970. We were off loaded in Sydney and had to come up by train to Brisbane. We had expected a sleek modern train...but oh no it was a really old one but were told it had a dining car. We had been feed at 5 in Sydney and the train departed at 6. Around 8.30 we thought a cup of tea would be nice. Dining car had closed at 8. What a journey. We all had to disembark at Grafton? and were fed breakfast...a grey boiled sausage or a boiled egg. Finally arriving in South Brisbane to rusting tin grooves.. we thought what have we come to. But our friends were there to meet us and we then went to Wacol Hostel until we bought our own house. Still in Brisbane.
