The Illawarra was an iron, full-rigged ship built in Glasgow, Scotland, by Dobie & Co. It was launched in 1881 from London and used primarily for the Australian passenger route. The ship was eventually abandoned at sea in 1912, when a load of coal shifted and caught fire. Her crew was saved by a passing British steam ship.
