The ship sank during rough weather in 1920 when it sprang a leak on the way from Sydney Harbour, Dawes Point. The wreck was only discovered
a few years ago, and lays close to the wreck of the HMAS Encounter.
The wreck is broken up but the boilers, engine and paddles are still the dominant feature, and makes for great photography. Divers have to
be careful when diving around this wreck, as there is a lot of loose cables from previous buoy lines that the fishos keep on cutting.
The wreck is protected under the Maritime Heritage act.
