It was the lush green pastures after it had rained that gave Emerald its name, and not anything to do with the Capricorn hinterland, which contains the largest sapphire gem fields in the world.
Founded in 1987, the Emerald Botanic Gardens are 42 hectares of playgrounds, picnic facilities and trails
Emerald is a prosperous rural service centre. The town was originally established in 1879 as the base for the railway line, but it did not really grow until a hundred years later, when it became a dormitory town for the important new coal mines in the Bowen Basin. Now Emerald has businesses selling farm machinery, a rural training college, a large irrigation dam and an airport, and it is the regional centre of the Central Highlands and the gateway to the Central Western district which produces cotton, grapes, citrus and grain — particularly sorghum — as well as coal mining.
Minister for Primary Industries and Fisheries
The Honourable Tim Mulherin said “Citrus canker has had a crippling effect on Emerald citrus growers, associated businesses and the Emerald community since it was first detected in June 2004.”
When the very prosperous and successful Emerald citrus industry was struck by canker in 2004, over half a million trees had to be chopped down. The canker was initially found on only one farm, but every citrus tree within a 50-kilometres radius had to be destroyed. The trees could not be replanted for two years, and it was almost five years before Emerald could officially be declared free of citrus canker.
