About Mareeba, QLD
Mareeba is a small town in Queensland’s Far North, 63km from Cairns. Located on the Cape York Peninsula, the town is 417m above sea level in the centre of the intersection of the Barron River, Granite Creek and Emerald Creek. The town is located in the local government area of the Shire of Mareeba, the state electorate of Cook and the federal division of Kennedy.
At the 2016 census, the town was home to just over 11,000 residents. Mareeba has strong Indigenous connections, with the name being an Aboriginal word, meaning the meeting of the waters. Prior to European settlement in 1877, the area was the home of the Muluridji people who were hunters and gatherers.
Mareeba was originally a busy coach stop for Cobb and Co coaches travelling from Port Douglas. With the arrival of the railway and a Post Office in 1893, the area grew quickly. The town now has a state primary school, a state high school and is serviced by the James Cook University partner hub.
The local economy is based on agriculture, with crops and orchards grown including avocados, mangoes, lychees, sugar cane, cashews, macadamias, bananas, pineapples, tea tree oil, coffee, cotton and various other fruits and vegetables.
