FAMILY TREE AND HISTORICAL ELEMENTS
Did you or any of your relatives ever live in Mount Garnet?

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 to the community to give expression to any activity considered worthwhile.
