I found this whilst Googling "Port Jackson" and thought you may be interested in this painting of her, by an old artist friend of mine - "David A. Worrall"

Wilt, you might want to look out for a book called "Get Aloft! An Apprentice in Sail" by Sidney Sandford ( ISBN: 0 9526455 2 1). Part of it concerns the time he served as 2nd Officer on the "Port Jackson" around the time of WW1.
