The collection consists of diaries, notes and letters from voyages from Britain to Australia via Italy and the Suez Canal in 1927 (SS Otranto) and from Fremantle to Britain in 1938 via the Pacific Islands, USA, and Canada (ships Strathmore, Awatea, Monterey and Georgic). There are letters written in September 1938 following Neville Chamberlain's meetings with European leaders and Adolph Hitler. There are three Royal Drawing Society certificates issued to Ella Mackay (aged 15) in 1924 and postcards of the "Monterey" and "Georgic".
