Sailed London September 24th 1880 - arrived Wellington January 12th 1881

The Hurunui, one of five ships built in 1875 by Palmers and Co. for the New Zealand Shipping Company's flag, was an unfortunate craft. She had a narrow escape when bound for Otago by colliding in the English Channel with another of the company's ships, the Waitara, bound for Wellington, and, after sailing the seas for forty years, was sunk on the 4th May, 1915, off St. Catherine's Point, Isle of White, by a German submarine.
