Toroa moved to Birkenhead

1990 25 February      
At the order of the Ports of Auckland, Toroa moved from Westhaven to settle at the Birkenhead Wharf on the North Shore.  For the first time in 10 years the steam ferry Toroa crossed the Waitemata Harbour  With no power of her own, the Toroa was towed to her berth by the 54-year-old steam tug William C. Daldy. The Toroa Preservation Society continue with her restoration.
