Unidentified Queensland stamp manuscript cancellations

Here are some Queensland stamp manuscript cancellations that I am unable to identify. Either the words / letters do not align with known receiving offices, or else the writing is incomplete, illegible or indistinct.

Can you help identify these?




Dated 10 February 1904 with a Bundaberg cancellation. Seen on Stampboards




Seen at Prestige Philately auction no 179 lot no 1299. Ex Griffiths. Probably Yarwun receiving office, 15 km west of Gladstone
