Merchant Ship Juan

I am trying to locate information on the merchant ship Juan which sailed Hong Kong to CookTown Qld usually loaded with Chinese labour - up to 700 at a time and the occasional European passengers in the 1870's. Having unloaded its people cargo she would proceed to Newcastle for a load of coal. This is all that I have been able to glean from the Trove articles dated 1877. Where would I look to locate details of this vessel and crew lists if at all available.
