MUNICIPAL HISTORY
Coolangatta was surveyed as a town 35
years ago, and sold in Brisbane from the
plans submitted by the Lands Department.
Very few of the original buyers had any
knowledge of the situation of the land
purchased, as it could only be reached by mail
coach from Southport.
The place lay practically in its natural
condition for some 25 years, with the
exception of a few places on the eastern end,
notably Greenmount Boarding House and the
Queensland Hotel, both close to the popular
bathing place for the Tweed Heads people.
The rest of Coolangatta up till 11 years
Although the railway was built about 18
years ago, it is only during the past 10
years that Coolangatta has made rapid
progress. Where the ridges were covered with a
dense scrub now stand hundreds of fine
residences, also a large number of boarding
When consideration of the rapid advance
Is made the reader will understand the
difficulties that have been met and mostly
overcome. The history of the municipality
dates from June, 1914, before war was
declared. At that time the municipality was
the smallest in Australia, possibly with the
exception of Thursday Island. Since that
time the townships of Currumbin and Tugun
on tho beach, and the latest addition, Biliga,
have all been born, and are each thriving
into separate towns, over 50 houses having
been built at Bilinga during the last six
months. ln the whole district about 120
houses have been built in the same period.
During the seven years the council has
been in existence tho revenue has increased
300 per cent. Up to the present the council
has had to confine its efforts to urgent
and necessary works; but in the near future

Shortly before 10 o'clock last night,
an out building at the rear of the
Queensland Hotel, Coolangatta, was
totally destroyed by fire.
The building which was about 50
feet by 15 feet, was originally used
as a stable and feed room. It was
situated about 20 toot from Brefney
Flats, owned and occupied by Mr.
James O'Rourke, who also owned the
Queensland Hotel, which is leased to
Mr. H. O. Bourne.
The members of Tweed Heads Fire
Brigade were in attendance and organi-
sed a bucket brigade, which kept the
flames from spreading to the flats.
Mr. O'Rourke's large garage, construc-,
fed of weather boards and - fibro,
caught fire when the doors were open-
ed ",to remove Mr. 0'Rourke's car and
one owned by Mr. Devery, but the
flames were subdued without much
damage being done.
It was not found necessary to use
the fire engine, as when the fire was
discovered it had too firm a hold.
The buildings were covered by insur-
ance to the extent of £60 with the
Union Insurance Company. A large
crowd was attracted by the conflagration.
