Kirribilli was a close sister to Kurraba (not to be confused with Kurra Ba). These were two of the earliest broadly similar K class harbour ferries that dominated Sydney Harbour in the first third of the 20th century.

She was one of the earliest casualties of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. In 1935 she was laid up along with 17 of her running mates looking for a buyer. She went to the ship breakers in the same year.
