Mitchell River Mission (now Kowanyama), re-housing plan, c1965

Mitchell River Mission, re-housing layout plan for redevelopment. The Mitchell River Mission was badly damaged by a cyclone in 1964 and subsequently rebuilt. In 1905 an Anglican Aboriginal mission was established on Topsy Creek, south of Kowanyama, but 14 years later it was moved to Mitchell River. In 1987 a deed of grant in trust (DOGIT), comprising 250 square kilometres of land was made in favour of the local people. This plan c1965, details provision for 'native housing', and a range of administrative and service functions. Collection of the Queensland State Archives
