Under command of Captain John Bruce
Departure port London
Departure date 2nd June 1871
Arrival port Semaphore
Arrival date 20th August 1871
Voyage duration 79 days

On the 2nd June 1871 the City again left London, bound for South Australia, arriving off Port Adelaide on Sunday 20 August 1871.

A relatively uneventful voyage, the City spoke to several vessels on the way including the Hindostan, from Newport to San Francisco; the Charlotte from Liverpool to Valparaiso; the Sam Mendell from Bombay to Liverpool; the Abbey Holme bound from London to Brisbane; and the Isurium bound East.

A passenger on this voyage, Mr. Melville Miller, kept a meticulous diary in which he records most of the happenings aboard including his opinions of some of the passengers.
