With a foreword by Tim FisherTowards the end of his tenure as British High Commissioner to Australia, Sir Roger Carrick, Lady Hilary Carrick and driver Murray took off on a trip around Australia in the ambassadorial Rolls-Royce. The official purpose of the trip was to say goodbye to many of the people Sir Roger had met and worked with during his time in Australia. Sir Roger's personal aim, however, was to see more of the real Australia, and the result of his travels is a rare and refreshing insight into Australia through the eyes of a fondly observant diplomat.As we rolleroundOz enjoying Australia's stunning scenery with the Carricks, we are introduced to the quirky range of people they meet, talk to, and joke and eat with along the way. We also discover just what a talking point a Rolls-Royce can be. And we find out something of what a High Commissioner really does to advance the interests of his country and its economy, and what this one thinks of some of Australia's leaders. We learn how Sir Roger heard of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales hundreds of miles from anywhere, and his view of Australia's reaction to her death. And we enjoy something of the love affair the Carricks so clearly have with Australia and Australians.British diplomat Sir Roger Carrick has served in Europe, the USA and Asia. He was High Commissioner to Australia form 1994--97.
