1 December 1872
On Sunday we attended a very nice Service at the Cathedral, which is only partly-finished. An elaborate Town Hall stands next to it, - the façade of which is complete. We went up the Paramata River in the Steam Boat, and walked thro’ the Bush to the Railway Station. The sides of this River are covered with Mangrove Trees, - and Orange Groves are planted all the way up the River on each side.
