Cairns Water Kamerunga Treatment Plant
Places of Significance - Cairns Regional Council

The former State Nursery has archaeological significance as a place on which Nursery activities took place, including the establishment of buildings. Evidence of the site layout, plantings and the types and sizes of the buildings is not well documented. The former State Nursery has scientific significance as a place where plantings of the late 19th and early 20th century were established and acclimatized. The extant plantings found on the site today have the potential to provide scientific evidence of the genetic basis of plants imported from other countries, particularly New Guinea and the Pacific basin.
