Local Description

Here presents the history of the most northerly sugar mill in Australia. It portays the hardship of the settlers in the 20 years which preceded the building of the sugar mill at Mossman, fifty miles north of Cairns, in 1897. The final success was preceded by the failures of southern capitalists and the independence of local selectors who refused government aid they considered ill advised.
