  • Description

    AUSTRALIA'S NEWEST TRADE SHIP, THE CENTAUR, LEFT SYDNEY RECENTLY CARRYING TO ASIA THE BIGGEST FLOATING FAIR AUSTRALIA HAS EVER SENT ABROAD.

    WORKING MODELS WILL TELL THE PEOPLE OF AUSTRALIA'S INDUSTRY - AS WELL AS TRYING TO SELL MORE GOODS. THE CENTAUR WILL BE AWAY FOR SIX WEEKS, CALLING IN SUCH PORTS AS SINGAPORE, BANGKOK, MANILA, HONG KONG, OSAKA AND TOKYO.

    THE SHIP ARRIVED IN SYDNEY ONLY LAST WEEK ON HER MAIDEN VOYAGE FROM BRITAIN. THE CENTAUR HAD BEEN ALMOST ENTIRELY TRANSFORMED.

    SPACE ABOARD THE CENTAUR IS AT A PREMIUM; SO THE EMPHASIS IS ON ORIGINALITY AND COMPACTNESS. A RANGE OF METAL TUBES MADE UP THIS DESIGN.

    A POKER MACHINE WAS ONE EXHIBIT - AND ANOTHER WAS A HUMIDICRIB; AND THAT GIVES SOME IDEA OF THE RANGE OF GOODS WHICH AUSTRALIA IS HOPING TO SELL TO THE NEW DEVELOPING MARKETS OF ASIA.

    IT IS THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE RANGE OF GOODS OFFERED BY ANY SINGLE AUSTRALIAN EXPORT MISSION - AND THE CENTAUR WILL CARRY A TEAM OF ONE HUNDRED MEN READY TO SELL THEM.
