Here's a web page for the first computer built in Australia:


I also got this e-mail message from John Geremin of the Australian
Computer Museum Society that might be of interest to you:

        Update ! We have been offered a machine from a Power Station that
        was in operation for 33 years ! (Slow depreciation !!)

        It was designed by 'BAILEY Controls' around 1960 - uses germanium
        transistors (maybe they ran out of spares!) and does NOT use CORE.

        It weighs about 10 tonne and I am currently trying to organise
        shipping it from Adelaide to Sydney (about 1000 miles).

Regards, John G. (aka 'megaJOHN') ..
