Summary
William Bailey along with his wife and three young children left England on the sailing ship Indus and after a voyage lasting six months arrived in Brisbane on July 2, 1871. William Bailey was a noted pioneer in horticulture and established a rose nursery on Hotham Creek at Pimpama, which he named Fernvale. The Ferndale Nursery was situated approximately four miles from Pimpama Railway Station. Before the opening of the railway to Southport William made regular trips over the rough track to Brisbane with produce and to pick up supplies. When Southport sprouted up with the opening of the railway, Bailey bought one of the first allotments offered for sale in the township. This was a one-acre block in Queen Street for which he paid 10 pounds. Here in 1887 he built a shop so that Mrs Bailey and several of his eldest daughters could sell the fruit, vegetables, seeds and plants and of course his roses from Ferndale. The Baileys continued to expand their business and erected a bakery next to the store. The store still stands today at 62 Queen Street, Southport. Frontage of the original store has been extended a great deal over the years. (Information taken from: Gold Coast Bulletin, 22 September 1983, p. 4)
