Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 13, No. 4. March 23rd, 1950
Most students spent a good deal of time sightseeing. Nearly all saw something of Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland, and a few reached South Australia. One physics student worked at Alice Springs for some time. We travelled by the easiest and cheapest method—hitch-hiking—where possible.
Two O.U. girls hitch-hiked from Melbourne to Brisbane, and back to Sydney. But even planes were used if the people concerned happened to be financial at the time.
