Home Hill, Queensland is a town in the Burdekin Shire, Queensland, Australia at the delta of the Burdekin River. It is a sugarcane growing area with underground water supplies to irrigate crops. At the 2006 census, Home Hill had a population of 2,907.GeographyHome Hill lies approximately 98km south of Townsville and 1269km north of the state capital Brisbane on the Bruce Highway. It is a part of the Burdekin Region which includes the neighbouring town of Ayr. Both towns are governed by the Burdekin Shire Council.TourismThe main attractions in Home Hill are the Burdekin bridge, Inkerman Sugar Mill and Ashworth's Rock Shop. In the past few years it has become increasingly popular for backpackers, who flock to the area to earn money planting and harvesting crops.EconomyThe town relies on its primary industries. The major crop grown in Home Hill is sugarcane. Other crops include mango and various vegetables.HistoryHome Hill was originally part of the Inkerman Downs Cattle Station.The cattle station was converted to sugar cane in 1911 and the town developed quite quickly after the establishment of the Inkerman sugar mill in 1914. This inevitably attracted workers and sugar cane farmers to the area and a small centre grew up to provide the necessary goods and services.
