There is further detail about the voyage of the ship Herald in the newspaper Shipping Intelligence report available from National Library of Australia's Trove website. I have changed some detail relating to Departure. How can further information and Sources be added. See:

Please add the details to a free-space profile. Category pages should not contain unique information and should have text to describe what is grouped. 

The free-space page can be linked from the category. See:https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Category_Creation_and_Removal#Briefly_describe_the_purpose_of_the_category

Thanks!

You can ask Margaret Haining as well, since she has been working on these categories for months. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Gale-2455

Doreen, I've created a free-space page and linked it to the category, as described by Natalie. As you can see it's included in the Category Info Box. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Herald%2C_Arrived_9_Feb_1845

I've orphaned the free-space page so anyone is free to add more information and sources without affecting the content on the category page, and to adopt the page. 

Please feel free to message me if you want any help with any Australian categories.
