Coolangatta - Cities, Towns and Localities

Coolangatta was named after the schooner 'Coolangatta' which was wrecked on the beach just north of the Tweed River in 1846. The ship was waiting to collect a cargo of cedar when the mishap occurred. In 1974 large ocean waves uncovered a wreck which is believed to be the Coolangatta.
