The Gayundah, Brisbane. Monday [13 May 1912] – The gunboat Gayundah, which has been in the dry dock, preparatory to being put into commission for a seven months’ training cruise up the Queensland coast, will leave on Thursday morning for Bundaberg and northern ports, where the first training operations under the new compulsory system of naval cadets will be carried out. The recruits and naval reserves will also take part in the training, and gun practice will also be held. It is anticipated that the cruise will occupy seven months, and that a return will be made to Brisbane in December.
