Departure port Adelaide
Departure date 25th October 1878
Arrival port London
Arrival date 8th February 1879
Voyage duration 106 days

On the 1878 visit to South Australia the City of Adelaide did not call at Port Augusta. After unloading at Port Adelaide’s McLaren Wharf for four weeks, the ship was anchored mid-stream in the Port River for a month to have the rigging and gear aloft subjected to a complete refit and overhaul, rendered necessary by the strain the vessel was subjected to on the passage out. She then spent five weeks loading in the Company Basin until the ship sailed from Port Adelaide on 25 October 1878.[1] She arrived in London on 8 February 1879, a duration of 106 days.
