The start of my Selleck line in Australia

Himalaya - February 26, 1842.

This is the Himalaya upon which 3rd Great Grandfather George Selleck came to Australia, arriving in Port Phillip Bay on February 26, 1842.

The family initially settled in Geelong, Victoria, prior to the gold rush when they moved to Buninyong, presumably after the significant gold find of Thomas Hiscock.
