Archive: A Visit to the Antipodes
April 2003
John and Mary's descendants at ArmidaleLife President Marigold MacRae and her grandsons Tristan Van Lynden and Alex Johnstone have recently returned from a four week visit to Tasmania, Australia and New Zealand.

In Tasmania, they were guests of a dozen or so fellow MacRaes at a splendid lunch before jetting off to Armadale, New South Wales, where they attended several events organised to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the arrival in Australia of John and Mary MacRae. No fewer than 350 descendants of this hardy couple were present at the Gathering!

Alex then had to return to his studies at University in Melbourne, but Marigold and Tristan then flew on to New Zealand where around 50 more MacRaes were waiting to greet them. Activities here included a visit to the still working MacRae Gold Mine but, sadly, we are told that we have no shares in this!
