Remains Of The Gayundah - An Old Gunship

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Gayundah has had a colourful history & one certainly worth "Googleing". She entered service as a gunboat in 1884 & was assigned to coastal patrols of Moreton Bay & as a training ship.

In 1921, she was sold to a Brisbane gravel company & began a career as a barge & in 1958 she was beached at Woody Point as a breakwater.

A sad ending to a once proud gunboat.
