Tangalooma Whaling station, on the east coast of Australia, is a classic example of how men from many countries work smoothly together in a booming Australian enterprise. The station, on Moreton Island, about 30 miles from Brisbane Queensland, has a "crew" of 142 for an eight to 10 week season in June-August each year.
