Remarks

The SS RIVERINA was built in 1906 in Sunderland, England. The ship operated on the Australian coastline until grounding off Mallacoota on the Victorian coastline in 1927. The grounding and wreck became a focal point for the region and remains an important event in the region’s history. Lifeboats were used to ferry passengers ashore from the vessel

Men who were enroute to England aboard the SS Carpentaria were off loaded, due to the conclusion of hostilities, presumably in Fremantle and returned to Sydney aboard SS Riverina, arriving there on 28 Nov 1918.
