The HMVS Cerberus is an Australian Monitor built in 1870. She is the last ship of the pre-modern Australian Navy. She is also the last remaining breastwork Monitor. She sailed from England in 1870, but after encountering a storm she was sent back. She sailed again for Australia and this time succeeded in reaching her goal.
