The Osmanli was an iron screw steamer of 403 net tons. The vessel was built by William Denny Brothers at Dumbarton, Scotland in 1846. The Osmanli steamed out from England in early 1853 with the intention of being used on a steamship service between Australia and England. After arrival in Australia the vessel was used on intercolonial shipping runs.

The Osmanli left Melbourne before daylight on the 23rd of November 1853 bound for Port Adelaide. The vessel was carrying passengers, coal, pig iron, and mail from Sydney and Melbourne. On board were thirty-five crew and forty-seven passengers. It was wrecked on 25 November 1853 at D’Estrees Bay, 35 kilometres south west of American River, Kangaroo Island, South Australia.
