“The Street Names of Mareeba, History behind the Names” book is one of our most popular in the shop. Written by Mary Thompson, who is the Volunteer Museum Curator at the Mareeba Heritage Museum and Visitor Information Centre, and Lorraine Townsend, this book lists each street name in Mareeba and documents the history behind its name.

“Most of us take street names for granted, but they tell a story, often a story about our pioneering families or people who have had some influence in the development of a town and its surrounding district. … [this] is an entertaining book, in fact a book of short stories, which adds a new dimension to the story of the Mareeba district.” – extract from the Foreword in “The Street Names of Mareeba, History behind the Names”.
