Purpose and Related Resources

This website using a Ships taxonomy to classify all the references to shipping. For that reason this site does not intend to exhaustively document ALL shipping to Australia. Some good resources online already exist that have contributed to that purpose:


The classification of ships on this website is based on one entry per ship. If a ship had multiple sailings then they are dealt with in the ship's entry with each sailing identified inside brackets, e.g. (1). If there were two vessels with the same name then they have separate numbered entries identified using roman numerals, e.g. Andromeda II. The term description of each entry has the following sections (if the relevant information is available):

  • Description
  • Sailings
  • Online Resources
