Glenelg was an iron steamship with a wooden superstructure. She spent the first part of her life in Adelaide (from 1875) where she operated as a tug.

In 1882 she was sold to Thomas Heselton in Sydney who used her as a tug and as an excursion steamer. Between 1882 and 1891 the Port Jackson Steamship Company used her for the same purposes.

In 1891 she was sold to Hobart and operated for the next nine years as a cargo vessel, mainly to and from Melbourne. She sank in Bass Strait on March 25th, 1900.
