The Cerberus was ordered in 1868 by the State of Victoria in pre-Federation Australia to provide protection for Port Phillip Bay. Cerberus was the first major warship to rely on steam propulsion alone. She was a breastwork monitor, her turrets being raised on an armoured breastwork to improve her sea-keeping.

Cerberus arrived in Port Phillip Bay in 1871 and never left. Sold for scrap in 1925, she was sunk as a breakwater in the bay in 1926. Various efforts have been made to raise and preserve her, but time is now running out fast.
