General Innisfail History

Innisfail township has a population of approx 8000, sits on the junction of two rivers, the Johnstone River and the South Johnstone River, and is the hub of the Cassowary Coast Region containing approx 19000 people and growing.  Innisfail is on the Bruce Highway, and the Palmerston Highway connects us to the west with the Atherton Tablelands.  Innisfail directly accesses over 101,000 sq kms of highly productive land growing sugar cane, bananas, and other tropical fruits. And to the west; grain, tobacco, potatoes, mangoes, avocado and dairy products, and many facets of aquaculture production are in operation, producing prawns and barramundi.  Innisfail people are a resilient lot and have bounced back well since cyclone Larry in March 2006, and cyclone Yasi in 2011.  Real estate prices have changed somewhat since the cyclones and looking forward to years to come, Innisfail will, as always, be a great place to live and invest.
