Its tonnage was 7700 tons and it was 450 feet long, powered by triple-expansion steam engines and capable of 14 knots.In August 1909, Geelong participated in the search for its sister ship Waratah , which had disappeared without trace close to the South African coast, and was thought to be possibly disabled and drifting.During World War One, Geelong was one of the ships leased by the Australian Government to transport the Australian Imperial Force to the Middle East and Europe.HMAT A2 Geelong departed on its first voyage on 22 September 1914, carrying 440 soldiers from Melbourne, consisting of the 3rd Field Artillery Brigade, the 3rd Field Company Engineers, and some members of the 12th Infantry Battalion. It proceeded to Hobart where it picked up another 912 soldiers, consisting of the 12th Infantry Battalion and the 3rd Light Horse Regiment. It eventually left Hobart, bound for Egypt, on 20 October 1914.Its second voyage left Adelaide on 31 May 1915, transporting 1264 soldiers of the 27th Infantry Battalion and the 7th Field Ambulance unit. It also picked up another 252 soldiers, who were reinforcements for various other units, from Fremantle on 7 June 1915.Its final departure from Australia was on 18 November 1915, carrying 1362 soldiers including the 32nd Infantry Battalion and some reinforcements for other units. The ship was wrecked shortly after disembarking the men in Egypt.HMAT A2 Geelong weighed 7,951 tons with an average cruise speed of 12 knots or 22.22 km/h.
