This extensive work provides a record of shipping movements in and out of ports within Victoria from 1798 to 1855. The compilations is similar in format and intent to those of compiled by John Cumpston, and progressed by Ian Nicholson, for Sydney and Tasmania. Separate lists of shipping arrivals and departures have been compiled for Melbourne, Geelong, Portland, Port Fairy, Warrnambool, Western Port and Port Albert, chronologically sequenced with details of the vessel, master, port of origin and destination, the major cargo and passenger numbers.

Compiled from newspaper reports, Customs' and other Government records and records of other Colonial ports, the list documents the arrival of vessels containing assisted and unassisted immigrants before and during the 'gold rush', the intro-Colonial trading voyages, the growth in overseas trade from Melbourne and Geelong in wool, tallow skins and gold dust and the surge of activity flowing from the discovery of gold in Victoria in 1852. All the immigrant vessels and their passenger numbers are detailed, together with recorded wrecks off the Victorian coast; the whole providing, for the first time, a comprehensive, referenced series of shipping movements for all Victorian ports.

A total of 585 pages of shipping lists plus alphabetical indexes for 3420 vessels mentioned, and 4850 persons detailed.
