MSC Davao III in from Jakarta off to Adelaide


Freo Today. 12 July 2023. Yesterday, just after Maersk Gairloch departed Fremantle MSC Davao III arrived. She’s a container ship built in 2002 and currently sailing under the flag of Panama. So where does the name ‘Davao’ come from? We think it’s in honour of Davao City, a highly urbanised city in the Davao Region of the Philippines. The city has a total land area of 2,443.61 km², making it the largest city in the Philippines in terms of land area. The number 1 tourist attraction in Davao, by the way, is The Philippine Eagle Centre, an 8.4-hectare area located at the foothills of nearby Mt Apo. The ship is in from Jakarta and departs at lunchtime today for Adelaide. Nice pic by Deanna Shanahan of famous Instagram duo @flotsamandjetsam6162
