Im doing research on the Clipper that fell of the cliff nearing Jenolan Caves in 1962.
I have news footage from the national film and sound archives.
My questions are:
Does anybody remember this?
What was the exact location of accident?
Was the coach left in the valley?
Has anybody ever seen the remains?
I think it moved over for a car, then the ground collapsed. It somersaulted 8 times, ending atop a 150 metre drop. Ozbus, if you're interested, a video named "Great Australian disasters of the 20th Century" has this.PanAm812 wrote:Apparently the
driver said he had moved over to let a car
pass by and got into the gravel.

a tree after the accident in 1962. Does
anyone know if the door is still standing
at this spot on the mountain?
