Tully


Tully has the reputation of being the wettest town in Australia. It is located about 2 hours north of Townsville, and is a later development in the region due almost entirely to the establishment of the sugar industry. Prior to this Cardwell was the main focus of the district, while Mission Beach was the place where the ill-fated Kennedy expedition started out.
Subsequent to the establishing of the sugar plantations and the mill at Tully, large numbers of Italians and other european families came into the industry and contributed mightily to the success of cane growing in general. Many of the families that came are now well established in support businesses.

As a result of this influx, the cemetery is severely demarcated by 'before'and áfter', with the original settlers'graves set at the bottom of the hill, and the colourful creations of the Italians shine from the upper levels.
