‘A Tale of Two Ships’ – Historical talk
November 25 - November 25 | 2:00pm - 4:00pm| $3
The mutiny and fate of the HMQS Gunboat Gayundah scuttled at Woody Point and the QGSY Lucinda the luxurious Queensland Government yacht.
This talk will be given by Richard Lancaster, local journalist, author, columnist, film producer and art curator from Redcliffe. He is the president of a crew of energetic Redcliffe locals called the Gayundah Preservation Society Inc, who are working to save what is left of the Gayundah. The Gayundah lies at the foot of the cliffs at Woody Point on the Redcliffe Peninsula and is something of a metaphor for the careless way we treat our history.
Richard talks about mutiny on the Brisbane River, government opulence and government neglect in preserving our local heritage.
Afternoon tea provided.
