John Pascoe Fawkner's tops'l schooner "Enterprize" was built in Hobart, Tasmania in 1829. She was a typical tops'l schooner of the day used as a commercial trading vessel.

In 1835 Fawkner purchased her and set sail for Launceston in an endeavour to find suitable grazing lands in Victoria. On 30th August 1835 she was moored on the lower reaches of the Yarra River just below the fresh water falls.

She made frequent voyages across Bass Strait during the early years of Melbourne's development.
