Cairns council awards funding for museum business plan


An iconic museum in Gordonvale that celebrates the history of the local sugarcane industry will develop a business plan, Cairns Regional Council said today.

Council has awarded $5,000 to the Mulgrave Shire Historical Society (MSHS) Incorporated through the Industry and Economic Development Fund to identify a sustainable business model and seek further financial support.

“The MSHS and the Mulgrave Settlers Museum contribute to the region’s broader tourism industry by helping attract visitors into Gordonvale’s historic town centre and positively impacting the local economy,” Council said in a statement.

Gordonvale is a growing township identified as a geographical area of focus in Council’s Economic Development Strategy 2022-2026.
