The Buninyong was a steel screw steamer built in Furness, UK and was launched in 1883, she was 92 metres in length and 12.5 metres wide. She was primarily used as a passenger vessel in her time operating on the Melbourne to Sydney run for the Howard Smith Company. She was converted to a cargo vessel as some stage and then dismantled and scuttled in the ships graveyard on the 13 February 1926.
She now lies in 54 meters of water with her bow facing toward Barwon heads. There are two larger boilers and also a smaller one towards the stern. The bridge is still in tact but has one of the exhaust stacks lying across it, see gallery. It makes for a great dive as there is much of the wreck to investigate from bow to stern.
