"Union Steams luxurious T.S.S. Awatea was the only way to cross the Tasman Sea from Australia to New Zealand in the late 1930s"
In August 1936 the Union Steam Ship Company took delivery of its new trans-Tasman liner, Awatea. In September the ship began a new express service between Australia and New Zealand.
She made six voyages in 1940-41 from Sydney to Canada when Australasian airmen were conveyed for training. A year later she would be sunk while serving as a troop transport.
