Bundaberg, Qld.

The Gayundah yesterday afternoon was submitted to public inspection, and during the few hours, from 2 o’clock till supper time about three hundred people must have taken advantage of the opportunity of going over the vessel. The Ship’s boat was rowed backwards and forwards incessantly from 2 o’clock till after five, and those who went on board found the visit most interesting. The gunboat carries an 8 inch 4.7 and two 1 1/2 inch quickfiring guns, and these were shown to the eager ones who spent much time in inspecting the working, by some of the crew. The local corps to the number of 33, embark this morning for a week’s training cruise.
