Cairns Timber Ltd.
Southern Heritage Drive Trail

Cairns Timber Ltd was founded in 1909 and took over two mills (Tom Griffiths & R.A Tills) becoming one of the largest timber mills in Australia. In 1931 general manager, George Douglas Gummow visited the United States and subsequently introduced a veneer mill. Until that time, practically no veneer slicing was done in Australia. The last log was sawn at the mill in 1966.
