 From the London Times of 4 Dec 1832 in the Ship News is this:


Arrivals at Hobart-town.--The Rubicon, Daniel, from London on the  
18th, and ...

On Mar 1833 is this:

Arrived this morning the Westoc, from the Cape of Good Hope, left on  
the 24th of December; also the Anthony, a Dutch ship, from Rotterdam,  
detained by the Conway frigate; passed by the Rubicon, from Sydney,  
for London;....

The ads in the Times for the vessel say it goes direct so I assume the  
Cape of Good Hope route.
