This design is a collage of digitalised images based around a historical map of Cairns. The Aboriginal shields make a path diagonally across the design following the trade route of inter-tribal commerce. The stilted houses and boats represent the Chinese fishing groups and Malay Town. The Queenslander, with its elaborate shutters symbolises the social elite that resided along the Cairns Esplanade and the train track, the link to the introduced agency of the North.
