The vessel sailed from Cornwall to Capetown and carried official mail from South Africa to Australia. It arrived in Port Phillip Bay on 14 March 1855 after a voyage of 115 days, one of the smallest immigrant ships to journey to Australia. The vessel was then used as a pilot boat and is recorded as being wrecked during a squall in Keppel Bay, Queensland on 26 March 1869.
