star-4.5
On 8 June 1856 a total of 194 people, descendants from the Bounty, arrived on Norfolk Island from Pitcairn Island aboard the Morayshire. This consisted of 40 men, 47 women, 54 boys, and 53 girls. They arrived in cold, wet blustery conditions. Few had ever been to sea before, They were seasick, homesick, and heartsick. The journey of 6,00 km / 3,700 miles took five weeks. They arrived to a recently abandoned penal settlement set aside for the ‘worst of the worst’ it was full of ghosts and memories. It was a large and frightening testimony of man’s inhumanity to man. The 1856 untold story will follow their journey in the World Heritage Listed Kingston area.

Private express Great Ocean Road...with an optional helicopter ride --

Review by Tourist follows; I am proud of my verifiable reviews: Errol is a professional of unequaled skill... For many years I have always taken private tours in over 50 cities and the experience he provided me in a short time gave me the experience that most tourist can only get in over a week. I wish all private tours were as great as his. He should teach other tour professionals how to excel beyond all expectations. Thank you very much Errol... I never forget you or the beauty of Melbourne!!
