SS Australis Deck Plan

Page Seven


A wonderful bow view of the Australis seen at anchor whilst on a Pacific Cruise


PLEASE NOTE: Photograph, Images & Deck Plan on this page is from the author’s private collection

Below is an excellent deck plan of the Australis covering all her lounges, bars, decks outdoor and indoor pools and cabins, etc. However, if you would like to see a much larger more detailed version of this plan, just click on it and a new plan will appear.

When the large plan loads - it will automatically reduce in size, but just click on it and it will return to its full size!

PS: Try not to click on the plan whilst looking at it for it will reduce, as the only tool available is the magnifier/reducer. Thus use the slide bars to move the plan, etc! Enjoy!
