Artist's Description

Sunrise at El Arish. Far North Queensland, Australia. This view can be seen from the Bruce Highway just north of El Arish.

If you look on a map you may not find El Arish because it is a very tiny place with only a few houses, two shops, a service station and a pub. It also boasts a wonderful golf course/country club that is enjoyed by many from the surrounding areas.

El Arish is situated between the towns of Innisfail and Tully. It is a little closer to Tully.

Tully is the wettest town in Australia with the highest rainfall. They say that if it is not raining in Tully, then it is going to rain.

El Arish is on the east coast and almost on the same latitude as the bottom of the Gulf of Carpenteria.

El Arish is about 110 km south of Cairns.

North Mission Beach and Bingil Bay are two of the beaches closest to El Arish. They are about 15 km by road from the house in which I am currently living. When my father was a child and there was no road, they used to occasionally walk to the beach to have a picnic. I think the beach is closer if you walk the way they went. I have no idea of the route they took. It would have been thick rainforest then and is mostly used for sugar cane, or banana farming now, or for beef cattle.

El Arish was settled immediately after the end of WWI as a soldier settlement and was settled by soldiers returning from fighting in that war. It, and the surrounding railway sidings, are all named after places the soldiers visited whilst in the Middle East. The streets in El Arish are all named for generals from the war.

El Arish recently suffered the effects of Cyclone Yasi. Many houses in the area were damaged and some demolished due to the cyclone. El Arish was slightly north of the eye of Yasi and got the full force of some of the strongest winds for almost an hour.
