Places of Significance - Cairns Regional Council

This building is of interest for its connections with the Mellick Family, originally from Lebanon, who were prominent in the commercial development of Cairns, Innisfail and other North Queensland towns in the early to mid-twentieth century. Alec Mellick established Mellick's Clothing Shop (originally referred to as a mercers) in Mossman in 1924. He relocated the business to Cairns in the 1930's. Alec's son, Victor, took over the business, which specialised in men's clothing in the 1960s.
