Ingham: Queensland’s “Little Italy”

Ingham: Queensland's
on 25 April 2024 in News

Nestled in the heart of Queensland, Ingham boasts a rich cultural tapestry, with its heritage deeply rooted in Italian traditions. Home to more than half of its population of Italian descent, it’s no wonder this picturesque township has earned the affectionate nickname, “Little Italy”.

Founded in 1864, Ingham flourished as the vibrant hub of the local sugar cane industry. Italian migrants were drawn to the region, seeking opportunities in the flourishing sugar fields. Today, Ingham proudly hosts one of Australia’s largest sugar mills, a testament to its enduring agricultural heritage.
