The Norfolk, a "Blackwaller" clipper ship, described as ...one of the most popular vessels in Messrs. Money Wigram's Anglo-Australian line" (Argus 2/1/1872). Although primarily used for the Australian gold rush passenger trade, the Norfolk successfully delivered the first batch of brown trout eggs to reach Australia alive in 1864, which gradually populated the rivers of Australia and New Zealand.
