This small ferry operated on the Parramatta River, originally for the Jeanneret company and later for Phillip Walker.

For a brief time in the 1880's she was used on a trial service to Mosman that does not appear to have been a success.

She was later transferred to Sydney Ferries Ltd.

She was broken up in 1925.
