Convict Ship Heber: arrived Sydney Australia July 1837

Looking for information on the Convict Ship "Heber" which said from Dublin March 1837, arriving in Sydney 11 July 1837.

Looking particularly for
an image of the ship
what type of ship it was (barque, schooner, tall ship etc)
crew, military & passenger listings (not convict listing)

I do know that the 80th Staffordshire was on board, but I'd like to know if the relevant soldiers names were recorded.
I also know that there were a number of free passengers on board, newspaper reports list a couple of (presumably) high profile names, but also make mention of 6 soldiers wives and children.
It is the soldiers, their wives and children I am particularly interested in, as I am looking for a Sgt Mjr Abel Hardman, his wife Mary and their two young daughters Hannah & Sarah.

If anyone is able to help with any of these I would be most grateful.
