Kanimbla was a sister to Kosciusko.

On the 15/06/1927 the Manly ferry Balgowlah collided with  Kanimbla at Circular Quay, she tore a hole in the Kanimbla's port bow. Balgowlah had minor damage,  Kanimbla nearly sank. Four people on Kanimbla were injured during the incident.

In March of 1937 the Royal Australian navy launched a new vessel and wanted to name her Kanimbla. As a result the ferry was renamed to Kurra Ba.

Kurra Ba was broken up in the early 1950's
