Has any one information on the Ship Tamaya and did it
carry passengers. It arrived in Brisbane Queensland on the
20th May 1886 to discharge cargo it came from Glasgow.

I can't say if it carried passengers, but there is a painting of the Tamaya on this website.

Hello nc,

The Tamaya (Official Number 45444) was built and registered in Liverpool in 1862. She was an iron hulled sailing barque of 570 tons.

You can follow her progress from Glasgow and around the Australian ports from the newspaper articles at this web site:

In the 1880's, I would have expected that passengers would rather travel to Australia by steam ship than sailing ship.
