Images of Cardwell

I’ve just been looking through some old photographs and found some enchanting memories of trips to Cardwell, just down the road.  It is under going lots of restoration and change.

I miss how it was before Yasi.

Before the cyclone it had some beautiful trees, covered in flowers, and there for the climbing.

I remember early trips where we would see people’s boats sitting on the shore. Although I was never sure if this one was ever used.

Although walking around after the cyclone I found this headstone, which I’d never noticed before.

The trees were different but many were still there.

  1. Thank you June for the memory. Cardwell has changed – it had to. I have such fond memories of using the town to take a break in whilst driving to Townsville and beyond with our little people. Now those little people are grown and Cardwell has grown too. It’s grown out of adversity but it’s nice to remember how things were.

  2. Thanks Diane – it is nice to remember how things were, and I am sure it will regain some of its former brilliance, as the locals want that so much and are working for it, and nature has a way of healing too.
