I've started a new post on the history of the Domino Industries/Austral Tourmaster coaches.If you have any photos and or information please contribute here.This post can be used to show the differences between each model.

The Domino/Austral Tourmaster was one of the most significant coach models to be made in Australia.They were amounst the most popular with companies like Deluxe Coachlines of Wangarratta,Greyhound and numerous other companies.
I am dedicating this post to the Domino/Austral Tourmaster and all the varieties of chassis' they were built on.I'd also like to use this topic to distinguish the differences between all models as they changed over the years in production.

An interesting point is that depending on the chassis,the front overhang,etc were different.The MAN's had a longer front overhang compared to the Austral's own chassis.The Mercedes 0303-3 was longer than the MAN's.I dont remember seeing any Volvo versions.

Thank you to everyone who has helped with posting here.Thank you.

On another post on aerodynamics, one commented about how the Tourmaster / DC122 achieved aerodynamics through sheer horse-power and torque - the Flying Brick concept.
Here are some of my images of the Flying Brick :
