Bungalow and Portsmith

Bungalow is a residential suburb 2 km south of central Cairns, separated from the city centre by Parramatta Park. It extends south-west from the showground in Parramatta Park to Chinaman Creek, Woree. Until 1973 Bungalow also extended south-east to the Smiths Creek and Trinity Inlet Wharves. In that year the wharf-side industrial suburb of Portsmith was excised from Bungalow. Hartley Street is their dividing boundary.
