Sailed London February 27th 1872 - arrived Auckland October 1st 1872

The Bulwark was a large first-class modern ship of 1332 tons, built at New Brunswick in 1862 for Shaw Savill Co, and was fitted up with all the latest improvements. She made one voyage only to New Zealand. She sailed from London on February 27, 1872, carrying a general cargo, including 450 tons of railway iron, and arrived at Auckland on October 1, 1872, by which time many people having relatives and friends on board had given up all hope of seeing the ship in port. She left London with eleven saloon and eighteen second class passengers, who met with an experience seldom encountered by immigrants leaving the Old Country for New Zealand. Captain Kelly was in command.
