"Mr. Walter Cambage By the death of Mr. Walter Cambage. of Moorooka, Brisbane, there has passed away one of the early pioneers of the dairying industry in the Maleny district. Awake to the importance of a district, the news of which held potential possibilities equal to the Northern Rivers districts of New South Wales, Mr. Cambage decided to face the many adverse conditions which beset the opening up of a tract of country clothed with dense primeval scrub. He purchased the property, previously selected by the late John Hankinson in 1904, and forthwith had it converted to a billowing field of paspalum, on which a herd of Illawarra-Shorthom cattle was pastured.
Being alive to modern equipment, Mr. Cambage was the first in the district to install the Echelon lay-out of milking shed, which afforded easy handling of the milking machines, then installed.
He was a member of the board of directors of the Maleny Co-operative D-airy Company, also a trustee of the Union Church, and was esteemed for his honest and impartial handling of all public matters.
Mr. Cambage came from the Milton district of New South Wales and is survived by his wife, one son and two daughters. Mrs. L. G. Campbell (Moorooka). and Mrs. K. G. Morris (Cooroy)." 5
