Gatton Agriculture College Open
THE QUEENSLAND TIMES - March 30, 1897

The announcement which we made in last issue to the effect that the Agricultural College, near Gatton, would be in readiness for the reception of students in June next is one which carries with it an interest for the whole of the colony. Hitherto Queensland youths who desired to equip themselves with a scientific agricultural education have had to go to the inconvenience and the expense of attending one of the Agricultural colleges of a sister colony. Queensland lost in every way by such arrangement. Now, however, the opportunity is provided for training our own students, and retaining their services after they have been so trained.
