Summary
  • Map shows an area of land between the Nerang River and the Pacific Ocean, situated in what is now known as Surfers Paradise
  • Map shows locations for Mr. H. S. Bere's house, Hon. J. G. Appel's seaside residence for 25 years, Mr. Barber's cottage, and Mr. Forrest's house; also Appel's Jetty, Myer's [ie. Meyer's] Ferry, Miss Davenport's residence, Southport High School [ie. The Southport School], Southport shelter shed, proposed foot bridge [ie. Jubilee Bridge], the Cable House, and the cable to Fanning Island
  • On 5th April 1915, the whole of what was to become the central business district of Surfers paradise was offered at auction. Government Road at the bottom of the image later became Ferry Road, then Cavill Avenue. The future Ferny Avenue, Pacific Highway and Orchid Avenue run parallel with The Esplanade, and the area is bounded on the north by what became Elkhorn Avenue. The future Chevron Island is connected to Southport and Mr. Hope's Island later became Macintosh Island, then Paradise Waters.
