Kedumba was a near sister to the Killara II.

After the opening of the Sydney harbour Bridge in 1932 she was sold to Victoria to operate on the Stony Point to Cowes route. Unfortunately whilst being towed by tug to her new home, she sank. The sinking was blamed partly on bad weather and partly on the tug operating at too fast a speed.

Ultimately her sister was placed into the service intended for the Kedumba.

Kedumba sank off Narooma on the New South Wales south coast in January of 1933.
