Dunwich which is known as Goompi by the traditional owners; the Quandamooka people, is a small town and locality on the western side of North Stradbroke Island in Queensland, Australia. The town is part of the Redland City local government area, based on the mainland in the Brisbane bayside suburb of Cleveland. Dunwich is one of three towns on North Stradbroke Island - the others being Amity Point and Point Lookout. In the 2011 census, Dunwich had a population of 883 people.HistoryOriginally known as Goompi and then renamed Green Point by the Colonisers, the first settlement at Dunwich was established in 1827 as pilot station and military post. It was supposed to be a good place to discharge cargo from visiting ships that traveled through the South Passage. However cargo was lost in bad weather and local aborigines were hostile so the post was disbanded in 1831. Dunwich was named after the Suffolk village of Dunwich near to the Stradbroke Estate by Sir Ralph Darling on 16 July 1827, in honour of the family title (Viscount Dunwich) of the Earl of Stradbroke, father of Captain Henry John Rous RN, commander of HMS Rainbow, which carried Governor Darling to Moreton Bay and surveyed the immediate Dunwich area.Plan your vacation with our Australia driving holiday planner and discover the best things to do in Dunwich.
