Kanaka’s (slaves) were also used in this area to assist the
cane growers harvest their crops this practice continued
through to the early 1900’s, when the immigration policy was
changed. Italian immigrants soon replaced the Kanaka’s and
have made significant contributions to the area with half of
the towns population of Italian descent.
Today Ingham is a friendly multicultural community with a
huge variety of national parks and quaint villages to visit.
