Abstract

The nineteenth-century history of Ripple Creek Plantation presents a microcosm of the development of sugar growing in north Queensland. The station managers adjusted to unfamiliar conditions and made use of Aboriginal and South Seas labour. Their families experienced the difficulties and griefs that came with living on an agricultural frontier.
