Wanganella

On the rocks! No doubt someone will be able to say what occurred here.

She went aground on Barrett Reef entering Wellington on 19 January 1947. It was not until 6 February that she was freed from the rocks and she did not return to the Tasman service until 9 December 1948.
Peter Plowman's "Wanganella and the Australian Trans-Tasman Liners" is a good account of her life and of the stranding.
