The Kelloe was an iron screw steamer built at Sunderland in the United Kingdom during 1866. A collier operating on the New South Wales coast, the Kelloe was travelling north from the South Bulli Jetty fully loaded. It collided with a southbound steamer, Dunmore, off Royal prince Henry Hospital, with a fatal blow. The fifteen crew of Kelloe under command of Captain Boyle abandoned ship in the steamer's boat and were met by crew of the Dunmore. This vessel was also damaged and taking water. The shipwreck was relocated in the 1960's and lies on reef in 50 metres of water. Most notable features include the vessel's boiler and anchors.
