Bald Rock (as originally named) was built for John Watson's Balmain operations. She also worked for the Balmain Steam Ferry Company and finally (in Sydney) for the Balmain New Ferry Company.

She was sold to Melbourne in 1907.

Bald Rock was renamed to Vaucluse in September of 1900 and was renamed back to her original form  in September of 1905.

She was broken up in 1928.
