Built in Echuca in 1874 the PS Hero worked the river trade up in the Koondrook area, later moving to Boundary Bend. During her time the PS Hero has worked as a cargo steamer, a merchandise steamer, and as a logging steamer, towing the logging barge “Canally”. It was while working at Boundary Bend in 1957 that the PS Hero caught fire and was badly burnt and later sank. In 1989 the Byford family purchased what remained and finally in 1998 were able to raise the hull and transport her to Echuca where she has been completely restored.
