The Voyage of the Immigrant ship Buffalo to the South Australian colony in 1836

Buffalo sailed from Portsmouth on 23 July 1836, arriving in South Australian waters in December of that year, carrying 176 colonists, including Captain John Hindmarsh, who was to become the first Governor of the new Province of South Australia following the proclamation of that colony on 28 December 1836.

It was the ninth ship sent by the South Australian Company to arrive in South Australia.
