Daphne was owned by the Hunters Hill & Lane Cove Steam Ferry Company & ran as far up the Lane Cove River as Fig Tree Wharf. Her running mates were Pearl & Lobelia.

She was sold to the Balmain New Ferry Company when that company took over the Lane Cove River route.

Daphne was burnt out on June 16th, 1916 along with the Leichhardt (they were at the time tied together).
