Hi, my name is Sheila. My husband and I, along with our 6yr old daughter, came by ship to W.A. in June of 1968 aboard the Fairsea from Southampton, arriving in Fremantle on 30th June of that year. We were taken to Point Walter Hostel where we spent 6 months. I would love to get in touch with anyone else who was on the hostel around that time - from June 1968 to January 1969.
