Gordonvale - Cities, Towns and Localities
This small sugar milling town some 24 km south of Cairns has the dubious claim to being the home of the Cane Toad. 102 toads were released just outside of Gordonvale on the 22nd June 1935. Being the first location to have these introduced pests released, no-one expected the extent or speed that this introduced species would spread, threatening ecological disaster in such sensitive areas as Kakadu in the Top End of the Northern Territory.

The town itself is pleasant for a sugar town with a central park and many historic buildings kept in good condition.

In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
