Sitmar's popular passenger liner "Fairstar" arrives at Adelaide's Outer Harbor 18 January 1968. Fifty-one years ago to the day....Happy Birthday pic for y'all!
Just a note: She was swung adjacent to her berth with the stern at one time almost overhanging the wharf - A very beautifully-uniformed Italian junior officer was having an animated conversation on his two-way radio at the time.

One of a couple of great conversions accomplished in the 60s and 70s. Fantastic picture!

In 1968 she was still doing liner voyages with the odd cruise. She started full time cruising ex Sydney in 1974.
