In 1770 Captain James Cook sailed along the east coast of Australia and named coastal features in the region that was to become Townsville, including Cape Cleveland, Cleveland Bay and Magnetic Island.  While he did not land in the region he noted use of the land by Indigenous tribes.

In 1846, James Morrill was one of 14 crew members on board the Peruvian which was shipwrecked on the Great Barrier Reef. Cast ashore near Cape Bowling Green 42 days after the wreck, he was the first European to inhabit the area for an extended period of time.

Townsville was eventually declared a municipality in February 1866, with John Melton Black elected as its first Mayor. Townsville developed rapidly as the major port and service centre for the Cape River, Gilbert, Ravenswood, Etheridge and Charters Towers goldfields. Regional pastoral and sugar industries also expanded and flourished. Townsville’s population was 4,000 people in 1882 and grew to 13,000 by 1891.

In modern times Townsville’s population is now around 172 000 and many of its sons & daughters have found fame in a variety of fields. To name a few;

Julian Assange of WikiLeaks fame,

Natalie Cook, Olympic Beach Volley Ball player,

Laurie Lawrence, Olympic Swim Coach,

Greg Norman, top Golfer,

Libby Trickett, Olympic Swimmer,
