Two teams representing Australian IFCR ventured to Durban in South Africa for the Sixth Rotary Cricket World Festival from Sunday, 7 March, 2010 to Friday, March 13, 2010.  Many of those team members had accompanying persons with them.

The Aussies.

Those participating were:  Graeme and Margaret Amoore, Howard Barclay and Helen Myles, David Benn, Robert Brigden, Mike and Julie Brzozowski, Clive Craddon, Lloyd Dungey, Robert Ephraims and Sue Fa'Atau, John and Annette Flynn, John and Norma Gray, Richard Groom, David and Jan Horsley, David and Wanda Johns, Doug and Karen King, Colin and Kay Lawson, Andrew and Monique Maunder, Ian and Kathy McCluskey, Peter and Cherie McRae, Patrick and Elaine O'Shea, Ian Petherick, Robert and Denise Queale, Ian Robertson, Bill and Meg Souter, Peter and Karen Thompson, Bob and Sandra Webster plus Colin and Anna Whiteman.

The Koala Bears and Kangaroos had varying fortunes on the playing field but the outstanding fellowship throughout the whole of the festival made up for any shortcomings elsewhere.

Many of the Aus tourists were enjoying their first experience of South Africa and took the opportunity to take part in organised tours either before, during or after the festival itself.
