Hello I arrived in Melbourne in June 1963 aboard the SS Canberra. we left Southampton on 24th May 1963, can anyone tell me the actual date we docked at Port Melbourne. It is our 50th anniversary this month and I would love to know the actual date.
I apologise for the delay in responding to your posting, and I am very sorry as you will have missed your deadline. A quick search of our database has a file from the port of Brisbane that shows the ship arrived in Melbourne on 16 June (folio 3).
