Stories about the Poon Gooey family made both the mainstream and Chinese press in Australia, as well as internationally, in New Zealand and China. From mid-1912 to the family's departure in May the following year, a range of opinions, both for and against, were voiced. Taking advantage of the interest in his family's final return to China, Poon Gooey used the press to have one final dig at the treatment he and his family received from the Australian government.
