I sailed to Adelaide on the Orion, arriving in October 1961. The journey info your site for this trip is incorrect. The ship departed from Tilbury, stopped at Piraeus to pick up Greek migrants, Port Said, Aden, Colombo and Fremantle before arriving at Outer Harbour.

18 months old - arrived in Wellington port on Labour day 1961 along with my brother Mark and parents Alfred and Margaret Tootill
