Places of Significance - Cairns Regional Council

The barracks are significant as a now rare form of accommodation in a period in which labour for working in the sugar industry was provided by a number of nationalities, and wages and conditions were basic. Accommodation was placed closed to the cane fields and was usually very basic; a kitchen and a bath area leading to an L shaped building which often contained only a small number of labourers. These buildings have long been abandoned as accommodation and have been used for other purposes (storage, spare accommodation, horse stalls etc).
