Escape to Murray River (Adventures Down Under #1) by Robert Elmer

Patrick is twelve years old when his world is turned upside down. His father, framed for a crime and convicted, is sent on the last prison ship to Australia. Determined to reunite with her husband, Patrick's mother leads them on a voyage to the land down under with the help of her children. Then, on a stormy night, the sixteen year old cabin boy of Patrick's ship falls overboard. Being the only one to see the accident, Patrick grabs a life ring and leaps in after the boy that has so often annoyed him. After praying himself and Jefferson through a close encounter with sharks Patrick is dismayed to find them stuck in a cave. Even with the help of an Aborigine boy, Luke, can Patrick ever be reunited with his family?
