She had a sister in the Auckland Star and the Adelaide Star and Wellington Star were similar.
She crossed to New Plymouth from Brisbane in April 1953 in 63 hours and forty eight minutes at an average speed of 18.69 knots.
She was driven by a single propeller weighting 27 tons and 21 feet in diameter.
At the time she and the Auckland Star were the most powerful ships on the New Zealand trade to be driven by a single screw.
