Macedon departing Port Adelaide

At no. 9 Glebe Island Sydney

This is another smaller vessel I sailed on, much like the Kooliga, sister ships I think built on the same plan at least. The Macedon was built in Germany but the Kooliga was built in the UK.
Nice little simple style conventional ships but boy could they roll, especially when light ship.
I spent 2 years on this ship with my father, he stayed there as Bridgeman/Mudpilot (quartermaster) for 17 years and it was his last ship at sea.
