Kummulla was one of the earliest of the K class vessels  and one of the smallest.

She was the first vessel on the scene when the liner Tahiti ran down the Greycliffe in 1927 rescuing many of her passengers from the water.

Kummulla was laid up immediately after the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge in 1932. Her engines were removed in 1934 to be sold and her hull was sold in 1939 to be scrapped.
