Bulli was built in Sydney. She was towed to NZ behind a freighter and spent her life trudging across the Auckland Harbour to and from the Chelsea Sugar works. She towed the barges, that were barely larger than she was; laden with sacks of sugar to Kings Lower Landing

Here she is at Cooks Lower Landing unloading sugar sacks. It is an interesting shot that encapsulates a way of life long since gone.

You can see her in the background left above and on the middle right aboveNot many pictures have been taken of Bulli.
It is a shame, she was so photogenic. She looks to be a smaller version of Wellington's Natone.
