Streets by the Sea: a Cardwell chronicle – Helen Pedley 2014


In 1864, when the first settlers established the township of Cardwell, it was at the frontier of an expanding British Empire and the first sea port on Queensland’s far north coast. Queen Victoria’s representative in Brisbane, Governor George Bowen, named this settlement after Edward Cardwell, Britain’s Colonial Secretary whose reforms had an enduring global influence.

Streets by the Sea – a Cardwell chronicle relates the stories of the people behind the street names of Cardwell and celebrates the 150th anniversary of the establishment of the town.
