The controversial name for a Sydney ferry has officially been changed.

Ferry McFerryface will be renamed the May Gibbs after one of Australia’s most recognised children’s authors.

Transport Minister Andrew Constance has made the backflip after Ray Hadley revealed the name was a captain’s pick.

Ray unearthed documents showing ‘Ferry McFerryface’ wasn’t one of the 36 names on the “final list for public voting” released in August 2016.

In a statement to the Ray Hadley Morning Show, the Minister’s office admitted overruling a panel of distinguished Australians tasked with creating the voting shortlist.

A public backlash ensued with the decision labelled disrespectful and the Maritime Union refusing to work on the vessel.
