Brushbox Log MonumentPrint Page Print this page

The 400 year old brushbox log commemorates the timber industry.

First settled by cedar cutters in the 1820s, the river fronted settlement quickly established a wharf to transport and collect the timber. Seeing the potential for river trade in the region, a town was surveyed for the area around the wharf in 1843 making Wingham the first town in the Manning Valley region.
