The Hilda was an iron screw steamer built in Port Glasgow, United Kingdom, in 1879. Operating as a collier along the New South Wales coast, the Hilda had a length of 38 metres, tonnage of 222 tons, and owned by the Coal Cliff Company. The vessel was totally wrecked on 20 June 1893 while on a voyage from Port Kembla with coal. Under command of Captain Phillipson, the steamer drove onto the rocks on the north head of Port Hacking and became a total loss with the eleven crew saved.
