Description: Amateur footage of a travel agents' trip to Australia and New Zealand, including visits to Sydney, Auckland, Whakarewarewa thermal reserve at Rotorua and Mount Cook.

Film maker was the Edinburgh based travel agent Robert Sibbald. Sibbald Travel Agents operated for 50 years from 1947. The films show the film maker's travels abroad researching holiday destinations and cruises. The film maker's grandson believes Sibbald took most of the films in order to give talks to various bodies to get business for the travel agency. Sibbald did a lot of work in ski resorts in Europe and he organised the travel for the Scottish curling teams both for holidays and competitions.
