Youthful holiday-makers at Caloundra pictured here, are the children of Mr. and Mrs. Duhig, and their guest Carol Winterflood. They are Bob Duhig, Carol Winterflood, James, Helen and Katherine Duhig and the photo was taken at Compton. This house and Delamere next door, both owned by Mr. and Mrs. Elks of Beerwah, were leased by the Governor Sir Leslie Wilson and Lady Wilson before they built their own home, overlooking Dickie Beach , Compton which will be occupied by the Duhig Family for a month, features charming daffodil yellow walls in the main lounge, emphasised by a delightful picture of a field of daffodils. Flowers from the owner's garden at Beerwah greeted the new tenants when they arrived.
