Kailoa was not built as a ferry but was converted to the task due to increasing demand and insufficient numbers of vessels.

She was originally built for Sydney Ferries as a cargo vessel and operated in that role until 1908 when she was converted to a ferry. At the same time, her name was changed from Greyhound II to Kailoa.

She operated mainly on the Clifton Gardens service.

Kailoa was broken up in 1941 - another victim of the declining inner harbour trade after the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
