The 341 ton Atwick was under the command of Captain Hugh McKay when she left London with passengers and general cargo bound for Western Australia. She carried two guns and had a crew of 20 men. She arrived in the Swan River Colony on October 19, 1829.

The Swan River Harbour Master's report said she carried 17 cabin passengers and another 79 in steerage. Another list attached to the Lands and Surveys Department's files shed more light on the identity of the passengers while the Swan River Settlement's colonial returns for February 28 and March 30, 1831 almost completed the picture.
