Picture of / about 'Port Melbourne' Victoria - SS Taroona departing Port Melbourne1 - SS Taroona departing Port Melbourne (Contributed by: GraemeReid  2024 pictures  )
SS Taroona departing Station Pier Port Melbourne 1957.
Taken with a Brownie box camera. It was traditional that passengers and those farewelling them used streamers and many can be seen hanging from the ship. Taroona generally made two return trips to Tasmania each week. Usual ports of call there were Beauty Point in the Tamar River near Launceston, and Burnie. Usually, Taroona berthed at Princes Pier but occasionally used Station Pier and sometimes, even 17 North Wharf in the Yarra River. Was replaced with MV Princess of Tasmania in 1969 which had drive on - drive off facilities. Before World War II n which Taroona was used as a troop carrier, she had two shorter funnels. One was removed after the war during maintenance with the removed one apparently used to add height to the other. A number of trips during the war were made to New Guinea in convoy. A version of such trips by one of the troops (The late George Edward Powell) was that speed was limited to that of the slowest ships in the convoy which prolonged the journey and caused much sea sickness as apparently the slower speed was the cause of much more rocking. (Having been to Tasmania and back a few times myself on Taroona, I can understand this quite perfectly)
