Harry Houdini Down Under (video)

Here's a well-done video about Houdini in Australia in 1910. There's even a photo here I don't believe I've ever seen; Houdini standing and pointing in row boat at 1:58. This is from "Doctor Colin's World of History" YouTube Channel.

I'm not sure where the good Doctor got the idea that Houdini flew 85km from Geelong to Diggers Rest on March 18. History records Houdini's plane was assembled at Diggers Rest where he flew short exhibition flights on that historic day. He later made several flights at Rosehill Racetrack in Sydney.
