Very little is known about this vessel. Even her name tends to vary amongst record keepers. She is named variously as Nola Creiner, Norah Creiner or Nora Creiner .

Nola Creiner was an iron sea-going paddlewheel steamer that was operating excursions on Sydney Harbour as early as December 1854. These trips included Manly. It is generally acknowledged that she was the first vessel to run excursions in Sydney.

There is some indication she was owned by  Eyde Manning's Shoalhaven Steam navigation Company in 1857. Possibly sold to China in 1865.
