MOUNT GARNET

The Gateway to the North, and

the West of Far North

Queensland

Mount Garnet is the link between the Tablelands and Cairns to the North and the Gulf

of Carpentaria and Darwin to the West. Tourists choose this town to take a rest and

enjoy the magic of the bush and its tropical, naturally air-conditioned climate at 700

metres over sea level. It is located within the local government area of the Tablelands

Regional Council in the far North of Queensland, Australia. The old mining town

became relevant when the Swiss Albert Vollenweider discovered copper on a slope of

Garnet Hill in 1882. This is however the first web site created in Mount Garnet to

portray the place and its people. The Mount Garnet Progress Association makes these

pages available for the community to give expression to any activity considered

worthwhile.
