HMAS Marrawah was an auxiliary minesweeper operated by the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) during World War II. She was launched in 1910 by Van Vliet & Company, Hardinxveld.[1] Her engines were fitted in Glasgow. The ship operated in Australian waters from 1910, and was requisitioned by the RAN on 12 December 1941. In 1943 she was transferred under the control of the US Army small ships section and alloted pennant number S-178. She was returned to her owners after the war, sold to Riverside Dock & Engineering Company and hulked. Her hulk was scuttled by the Royal Australian Air Force off Sydney on 10 May 1951.
