Wednesday 20th April
Charlie Hammel Park (Steiglitz)
Steiglitz is a rural coastal town and locality in the northern part of the Gold Coast. In the 2011 census, Steiglitz had a population of 441 people. Steiglitz is bounded to the east by Moreton Bay, to the south by Jacobs Well, to the west and north by Woongoolba. The village in Steiglitz is located at Cabbage Tree Point and is often referred to by that name. The name refers to the cabbage tree palms that grew in the area. The district is named after Stegelitz, Germany, the home town of the pioneer family Kleinschmidt. In the late 1800s, the farming district located between the Pimpama River and the Logan River called Pimpama Island and encompasses the modern localities of Jacobs Well, Norwell, Steiglitz and Woongoolba. It was referred to as an island because there were a number of lagoons and swamps that isolated the area during the wet season; however, this disadvantage made it good land for growing sugar cane.
