Old family videos. Recorded on 8mm film

Around 1973 at Burliegh Heads Queensland. Grandfather Albert Arthur Crowther and Steven Dix as a child on a Shell surfboard. Burieigh heads was the key holiday location for the family throughout Steven's life.



Shots of Steve with his father Robert Phillip Dix in the surf at Burleigh Heads.

Fortunately Burleigh has remained largely unchanged since the 70s. As anyone with memeories of the area would agree.

One of the favourite holiday destinations of Robert Dix was of course the NSW snow fields of Perisher etc.

Toowoomba memories around 1973 With older brothers Garth and Michael Dix. The family lived in Knockator Crs, where the old family home still exists today.

Coorpraroo in the early70s, Steven with sister Suzanne in the Wheelborrow. Home of DIX grandparents Ivy and Phillip. This house in Brisbane still stands today.

Images here of Grandparents IVY and Phillip as well as Great Great Grandfather HUNT. Also some amazing old footage of Brisbane from many years ago.
