About us

The Cairns and District Family History Society Inc was incorporated in 1989 to promote family history and genealogical research in Cairns, its surrounds, Queensland, Australia and the World!

Cairns is located in tropical Far North Queensland, Australia.  The districts covered range from Cardwell in the south, Normanton in the west, and as far north as the tip of Cape York.

The Society’s rooms and library resources are located on Hartley Street opposite the Cairns Convention Centre, and are open three days per week, one Saturday per month and one evening per week.
