Voyage to London in 1872
Under command of Captain John Bruce
Departure port Port Adelaide
Departure date 30th October 1871
Arrival port London
Arrival date 25th January 1872
Voyage duration 87 days

After being anchored mid-stream in the Port River for a week after her arrival, the ship was docked at Company's Wharf in Port Adelaide for the remainder of her visit.[1] She sailed from there on 30 October 1871 and arrived in London on 25 January 1872, a duration of 87 days.

Thanks to the generosity of Dr. Alan Platt, historian, specialising in the history of the City of Adelaide and its illustrious masters, we have a list of passengers who are known to have made the return voyage to England aboard the clipper. The list was compiled by Dr. Platt from data collected from Adelaide newspapers by R.T. (Bob) Sexton, noted South Australian maritime author.
