HMAS "LST 3022" was a landing ship tank which was operated by the Royal Navy and Royal Australian Navy (RAN). She was built by Lithgows in the United Kingdom during World War II and was launched on 26 January 1945. She served with the Royal Navy as HMS "LST 3022" until 1 July 1946 when she was transferred to the RAN and commissioned as HMAS "3022". She saw almost no service with the RAN, however, as she was placed in reserve later in 1946 and was not reactivated.

HMAS "LST 3022" was sold to R.R. Coote for disposal on 4 June 1950 and was purchased by the Queensland Cement & Lime Co. in September 1954. She was converted to the dredge "Coral" and was active as late as 1977.
