Hap Wah

Hap Wah


The Hap Wah project blends early Cairns history with the present day. 2013 marked the 130th anniversary of the Hap Wah Company's first crushing of commercial sugar in the Cairns area - indeed, the first north of the Johnstone River. It was the beginning of the sugar industry in this part of north Queensland. A commemorative plaque to honour the Hap Wah enterprise was installed at Stockland Cairns in January 2013, where the heart of the plantation was once located. The Chinese characters for 'Hap Wah' were created for the historical project. 'Hap Wah' means 'Combined Chinese' or Chinese joint venture. Joel of Auxiliary Central recreated the Hap Wah Coy stamp and adapted it for this logo. 

Cairns and District Chinese Association, Inc; Cairns Historical Society; Cairns Regional Council; Chinese Heritage in Northern Australia, Inc; Julia Volkmar; and Stockland Cairns are partners in this project to bring this significant story to light. The project is truly a community effort.
