Voyage of the Southern Sun – National Film Screening

29 Oct 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Adventurer of the Year, Michael Smith discovered the delights and perils of true adventure in a solo circumnavigation in his tiny amphibious flying boat, Southern Sun, that retraced historical Qantas, Imperial and Pan Am airmail routes, in search of the glory days of 1930’s aviation. At a leisurely 80 knots, taking his time flying from cities to forests; deserts and rivers; over mountains and volcanoes; coral reefs, vast stretches of oceans, ice flows and glaciers; oh, and giant rats. Michael’s journey captured the geographic splendour of the world and learnt a little of human kind and himself along the way.
Voyage of the Southern Sun, directed by Rob Murphy, features stunning footage, tales from around the world and insight into the high’s and low’s from a record breaking and award winning voyage.
