An intertitled travelogue film of a trip to Australia starts with a map showing the journey from London to Australia, followed by views at different stages of the route: a bus; arrival at a train station; a sea voyage; the crew and other passengers aboard ship. The ship docks in Melbourne showing several streets scenes. On to Sydney, with the Harbour Bridge, still under construction. A title reads: "Manley Beach" (sic) with footage of surfers and soldier crabs; closing with views over Brisbane.
