Australian Women's Weekly Treasure Hunt Cruise 1970

Our Treasure Hunt Cruise under way

The first of our two 1970 Treasure Hunt Cruises was off to a memorable start with one of the most colorful sailings on record.

CROWDS of relatives and friends farewelled the streamer-decked Orcades out of Sydney Harbor bound for 15 days in the Pacific.

Demand for berths on this cruise was so great that World Travel say they could have filled two ships!
If you missed out, there are still a few berths remain-ing on our second Treasure Hunt Cruise this year.

This cruise leaves Sydney on July 2, calling at Bris-bane, Noumea, Suva, Pago-Pago, and Nuku'alofa, returning to Sydney on July 17.

What better way to spend an annual vacation than to leave the dreary winter weather and spend 15 days soaking up sunshine, lazing on deck, making friends, playing deck sports, dancing far into the night. And, of course, calling at the exotic Pacific islands.

All this costs as little as $289. But you must book soon, as there are only a few berths still available.
As if the cruise itself were not enough: There is "treasure" aboard for a lucky passenger on each of our 1970 cruises.

Each prize is worth $6000
— two tickets on our five-month 1971 World Discovery Tour, plus plenty of spending money.
The winners are presented with their prizes at a costume Pirates' Ball aboard the cruise ships.

Our three new Treasure Hunt Cruises for 1971 will be announced in two weeks.

Watch for the exciting details.
