Overview

It's the 1960s and Jacky, Angie and Linda are three young English girls who break away from their home and families in UK and become 'Ten pound Poms' using the Australian immigration policy as a means to explore 'the wide, brown land'. Their adventures, from flatting in Kings Cross to travelling by motorcycle all over Australia, including the then unsealed Nullarbor and Mt Isa track, will amaze you. It will keep you laughing and remind you that if you have the will there is a way; it's just a matter of following your dreams. Australia is now full of immigrants from all over the world but in the late 1960s, during the white Australia policy, a large amount were recruited from Britain to work in the expanding motor and white goods industry. The Baby Boomer generation, now in their 60s and 70's are busy collecting photos and momentos of their youth. This book recalls the days in Australia when opportunities were there to be taken, the time before bureaucracy had taken hold and 'health and safety' was unheard of. It will appeal to many who came to Australia under the immigration scheme of that time and have their own memories of finding their feet in a new country.
