Nurses Quarters History

Nurses Quarters History

The Babinda Nurses Quarters is one of the most innovative examples of 1950s modern architecture in North Queensland. The current building was designed by S.G.Barnes as an addition to the original Nurses’ Quarters, constructed between 1952 and 1953. The building provided each nurse with their own private room. It accommodated one matron, 23 nurses and four night nurses. Other facilities included a recreation room, lounge and studies. Barnes also designed the Gordonvale Nurses’ Quarters (c.1947) and the Edmonton Ambulance Station (1951).

The Nurses Quarters is set high granting views to the town, mill and mountain range. The building successfully integrates innovative Modernist elements such as the semi-circular Matron's flat and the distinctive verandahs. The quality of the building's detailing is also exceptional, and can be seen in the internal staircases and the verandah balustrades. The dining room at the south-eastern corner of the building features a coffered ceiling with Art Deco cornices and French doors providing direct access to the verandah. 

The building demonstrates an aspect of post-war health care. Onsite accommodation for nursing staff was considered to improve hospital efficiency and the standard of nursing. It also represents the continuation of nineteenth century attitudes, when it was considered necessary to keep young women under the eye and discipline of chaperones when they were not living with their families.

Babinda Locals Staring in New Samsung Ad

Babinda Samsung Ad

Babinda local Harry Anning will be gracing television screens in the coming months, along with 80 other Babinda and Tully residents.

Korean tech company Samsung decided the Far North towns – age-old rivals for the Golden Gumboot “Australia’s wettest town” award – were the perfect place to set an advertisement for the new water-resistant S8 Samsung Galaxy phone, and have been filming for the past week.

Mr Anning was on set at the Deeral boat ramp on Monday, playing a fisherman.

“It’s hard work, but it wasn’t bad,” he said. “I had to pretend like I’d caught a fish and was taking a selfie.”

He is one of many locals to play a role in the ad.

Even tourists got in on the action, including Sydney visitor David Lamb.

“I was at Golden Hole, and they approached me and asked if I wanted to be in it,” he said.

“It’ll be a good story to tell.”

Production teams wrapped up filming yesterday, with a local town meeting scene filmed in Babinda last night followed by a thank you dinner.

Despite the battle for the “wettest place in Australia” title, crews had clear blue skies to contend with on Monday and reinforcements, in the form of a rain machine, had to be called in for filming.

Samsung director of product marketing Hamid Fardoost said Tully and Babinda were the best places to film the ad.

“The competition between the two is a famous, beautiful Australian story,” he said.

“It was a perfect fit to market the new Galaxy S8.”
