Hello and Welcome!

The French aviator Maurice Guillaux spent less than 200 days in Australia in 1914. In that time he made many wonderful flights, but the most important was the carriage Australia’s first airmail and air freight from Sydney to Melbourne in July 1914. This website celebrates his work and describes preparations for the re-enactment of the flight, July 2014
