Fearless was a wooden steam ship not originally built as a ferry. From 1895 until 1899 she was operated by her builder in Newcastle as a tug. Sold to Manly Co-operative Steam Ferries she operated in that role on Sydney Harbour and did double duty as a spare boat.

After the reorganisation of the Manly fleet she became surplus and was sold to Brisbane in 1908, finally being broken up in 1952.
