She was chartered by North Coast Steam Navigation Company and was in 1909 sold to the British Western Pacific Territories and renamed Tokelau. She returned to Australia in 1916 and got her original name back. Under a journey from Sydney to Brisbane loaded with various merchant goods she developed a leak and sank outside Pittwater 22. October 1916. The wreck was found by technical divers in 2009 and rest today on a depth of 60 meter in open waters east of Palm Beach.
