Travelling to Australia

In 1947 Qantas began its famous 'Kangaroo Route' from Sydney to London. Running three times per week, this regular passenger service enabled many more people to travel between England and Australia quickly and comfortably. The Australian government became the major shareholder in Qantas in 1947 and was able to use the airline's publicity to promote the post-war Australian immigration boom. The brochure below encourages Britons to visit Australia and offers information for those considering moving here permanently.
