MOUNT GARNET AND THE GULF

Mount Garnet is described as the stopover to the Gulf of Carpentaria. Tourists choose this town to take a rest and enjoy the magic of the bush and its pleasant, naturally air-conditioned  climate at 700 metres over sea-level. Mount Garnet is located within the local government area of the Tablelands Regional Council in the far north of Queensland, Australia.

 This old mining town acquired relevance since the Swiss Albert Vollenweider discovered copper on a slope of Garnet Hill in 1882.

This is however the first web site made in Mount Garnet, to portray this place and its people.


The Mount Garnet Progress Association makes  these pages available to the community to give expression to any activity considered worthwhile.
