Abstract

A small bay in Sydney Harbour may be the last resting place of a vessel once described as a 'most perfect ship'. It sailed between England to Australia as a luxury passenger clipper for 25 years, before becoming first a reformatory ship then a naval training vessel. Dr James Hunter traces its career, its demise and the hunt for its remains
