CITY OF ADELAIDE

Visit 
http://www.cityofadelaide.org.au

This clipper is of extraordinary heritage importance to Australia with respect to 19th century migration to Australia, Australian trade, Australian nation building, and the relationship between Britain and the Australian colonies.

 The City of Adelaide represents the foundation era of Australian maritime, economic and social history. She is: 
- The oldest surviving clipper ship in the world being five years older than the famous Cutty Sark
- The only surviving sailing ship that gave regular passenger and cargo service between Europe and Australia. - One of only two surviving composite clipper ships in the world - the other is the Cutty Sark
- Named after the Australian city because she was built for the sole purpose of bringing immigrants to South Australia and taking Australian goods (e.g. wool, wheat and copper) to the London markets.
The owners of the Scottish slipway where she currently sits want her removed and, as a consequence, the UK authorities plan to 'deconstruct' her.  She needs to be brought back to Australia as she is a unique part of our heritage. Otherwise she will be lost forever, and indeed it is a miracle that she has survived for so long. 
The above website contains an electronic petition - please sign, and advise your friends - for the sake of our national heritage and our children. .
