Upon inspection it was determined that the repairs would have been too extensive and she was subsequently sold by the Blue Star Line for scrapping. On April 25th, 1975 she departed Liverpool possibly under tow on the long voyage around the southern tip of Africa destined for South Korea. She departed Cape Town, South Africa on May 25th and finally arrived at Masan, South Korea on June 12th, 1976. Shortly after her arrival Adelaide Star was run up on the scrapping beach and dismantled for scrap by the Hankook Steel Company. By September of 1975 dismantling of the ship was complete.
