In 1770, Captain James Cook was the first European to discover the region of what is currently known as Cairns, as he navigated the coast of northern Australia. Because the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Cairns was difficult to navigate at that time, Cook’s ship the ‘HM Bark Endeavour’ sustained serious damage when it ran aground on a coral reef. The ship with crew managed to make repairs outside what is now the Endeavour River close to Cooktown, north of Cairns. The rugged terrain around the region was difficult to explore as can be seen by the names given to some of Cook’s discoveries: Weary Bay, Hope Island and Cape Tribulation.

Although the region was explored in 1770, it was another hundred years before Europeans returned to settle. Gold was soon discovered at the Palmer River, east of Cooktown in 1872, establishing a gold rush which finally saw the founding of Cairns in 1876.

The moderately flat land north and west of the sheltered port of Trinity Bay redeemed what was essentially a sandy beach lined with swamps, mangroves, and rainforest. After a diversity of names, from a Collector of Customs in Brisbane, Thornton; a colonial treasurer, Dickson; Newport, chosen by the people of Cooktown; the final name was selected in honour of Queensland’s first Governor, Sir William Wellington Cairns.

The first surveyed street in Cairns in 1876 was the Esplanade, and was originally named after a Fred Troughton of the Australian Steam Navigation Company’s travelling superintendent. Originally a city of tents, Cairns began to establish major structures in the form of storage sheds and wharves.

Fearing a risk of becoming a ghost town, a railway was chosen for the region as a service for the Atherton Tableland, thereby bringing income and new life.

The town of Cairns began to develop during the early 20th century as the Tableland and surrounding areas established agricultural and dairying industries.

A major export trade became apparent with sugar cane growing, and remnants of huge sugar plantations can be noticed along the coast of the Cairns region.

Cairns has now developed in leaps and bounds, continuing to grow into a modern city.
