[Sistership FIJI]

A three masted barque she was a slightly enlarged sister of the Fiji.
 
Sailing from Barrow, England to Cooktown, Queensland with railway material,  Pizarro passed Gabo Island, Victoria on 2nd March 1884, ninety-two days out, but was not seen again.
 
About two months later two broken iron beams and a part of a poop were found at Walkers Bay near Cooktown, Queensland, and were thought to have come from her.
