Narrabeen (I) around 1899. This fine paddle steamer was built by Morts Dock in the harbourside suburb of Balmain in 1886 for the Port Jackson Steamship Co. Ltd. She was capable of a steady 13 knots and could carry more than 800 passengers.

In 1911 she was withdrawn from passenger service and used only to carry cargo to and from Manly. She was sold in 1917 and hulked.
Narrabeen was the last paddlewheeler built for the Manly trade and also the last Manly paddlewheeler withdrawn from service (though not the last in passenger service, Brighton gets that honour)
