Edmonton

4
Edmonton was an independent township supporting a sugar mill, but is now a suburb of Cairns, Queensland in the Cairns Region, Queensland, Australia. In the 2011 census, Edmonton had a population of 9,934 people.GeographyEdmonton is located approximately 10km south of the centre of Cairns. It is within the Cairns Region local government area. The Bruce Highway passes from south to north through the centre of the suburb and the North Coast railway line passes from south to north through Edmonton parallel and to the east of the highway. The suburb is served by two railway stations, Edmonton and Queerah (a former neighbourhood name).HistoryIn 1911 a railway station was built in the location and named Edmonton, probably after Edmonton, London, England. The town then took this name.The primary industry in Edmonton was traditionally sugar cane harvesting, but as Edmonton has grown, it has become an outer suburb of Cairns. Edmonton has experienced rapid growth in new housing estates in recent years resulting in consequent population growth.In March 2006, Tropical Cyclone Larry hit Edmonton causing minimal damage. The centre of the cyclone passed through the town of Innisfail, 75km south of the suburb.
