Queen of Nations
Ship: ? tons
Captain: Donald

Surgeon Superintendent:
Sailed Liverpool by way of Belfast 21st March 1874 - arrived Auckland 5th July 1874

The Queen of Nations was described on her arrival at Auckland in 1874 as an Aberdeen clipper built in 1861. She made only one voyage to New Zealand. She sailed from the Mersey on March 17, and proceeded to Belfast to take on a full complement of immigrants, and finally sailed on March 21, under Captain Donald. She carried light winds and fine weather to the Equator, which was crossed on April 23. On the 22 of the following month the meridian of the Cape was passed. She experienced a succession of south-east gales, which ran the vessel down to 54 degrees south. A few days before sighting the Three Kings, on July 2, the vessel was in company with the James Wishart, and the two ships sailed in company until arrival at Auckland on July 5. Three deaths occurred during the voyage. The passage occupied 105 days from Belfast, and the James Wishart took 106 days from Gravesend. About a week before the arrival of the Queen of Nations at Auckland  great excitement was caused by a false report being circulated that the ship had been wrecked and all the passengers and crew had perished. The Queen of Nations was wrecked at Woollongong, N. S. W. on May 31 1881 when outward to Sydney. All hands were saved except one.
