Sailed London 2nd November 1866 - arrived Lyttelton 10th February 1867

Although a fine large ship of over 1000 tons, the Himalaya made only average passages, but on one occasion she ran from the Lizard to the Snares in 78 days, She made twenty-four voyages to the colony, and brought out many thousand passengers. She was built in 1863, and about 1865 was purchased by the Shaw Savill Co. In 1896 she was sold to the Alaska Packers Co. and renamed the Star of Peru. In 1880 her rig was changed from a ship to a barque. NB A small barque named Himalya, a vessel of 477 tons, arrived at New Plymouth, and then proceeded to Nelson, arriving there on January 10th, 1844 under the command of Captain Burns.
