There's many a story to tell . . .
Masters, crew, a stowaway or two; passengers, cabin,
saloon and steerage; births at sea, deaths at sea; deserters;
vessels with one crew and one passenger and those with 70 crew
and hundreds of passengers; simple single sail boats, barques,
brigs, large steam ships; whaling voyages, regular coastal passenger
trips, voyages from other Australian ports, London, San Francisco,
China and other exotic ports - you will find them all here.
The lists on this site are being transcribed from
the State Records Authority of NSW Reels of the Shipping Master's
Office, Inwards Passengers Lists . . . . . . are added to weekly.
