Down Under, Part 1

Combi vans, Vegemite sandwiches and beer...
 
All symbols of Australia that Men At Work sang about in "Down Under" their international hit single:
 
In January 1983 it was Number One in the British charts and I remember it well.
 
Those lyrics may even have encouraged me to spend 7 months "Down Under" almost 10-years later.
 
And as I travelled the country I also experienced Combi vans, Vegemite sandwiches and slabs of VB, Tooheys & Castlemaine.
 
I also enjoyed many amazing sights...
 
Including Sydney's Opera House & Harbour Bridge:
 
Uluru: 
 

Katherine Gorge:

 

 
And the Pinnacles Desert:
 
Those photos aren't mine...they're random web finds. 
 
But I did take the following pictures of the Rolls-Royces and Bentleys I saw as I travelled from place to place.
 
So here is some "Down Under Bentley Spotting" from almost 20 years ago:

 

New South Wales

 

This photo was taken at the service depot of York Motors of Sydney, official Rolls-Royce & Bentley distributors at the time:

 

 
Notice the "SPIRIT" registration.
 
And here are some other photos from around the city:
 
A Silver Cloud III under the Harbour Bridge.... 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  

 

Victoria

 

This photo of a Silver Spirit II was taken outside of Hamiltons, the then official Rolls-Royce & Bentley distributor for Melbourne:

 
 

And these photos were taken at RA McDermott, a Rolls-Royce & Bentley specialist then operating out of Richmond, Melbourne:

 
 
 

 
 
 
I especialy like this T2...
 

And this lovely Bentley T Coupe was parked outside of Dutton, a classic car specialist:

 

 

These photos are from around Melbourne:

 
Just calling in for a Yarra Thai take out...
 
 

I was even lucky enough to catch the Hooper Emperor State Landaulette during its charity tour of Australia:

 
 

 

Western Australia

 

This Turbo R & Mulsanne S were photographed at Chellingworth Motors, still the official Bentley distributor for Perth:

 

 
 
And this Silver Spirit was parked downtown:
 

Do any of our Down Under readers recognize or own one of these cars?
