The Doonan area was first settled in the late 1800s. Many of the early settlers had land on what is now known as Cash Road. They included Neils
Bierregaard in 1889 and William Stuart-Russell, 1910-1930. Also Thomas Robinson, who selected in 1898, and was granted deeds in 1906 to 159
acres. He transported all his goods from Eumundi railway station by packhorse and earned a living by felling timber mainly from his own property. After
he was killed by a falling tree in 1910, his family stayed on the property. His eldest son Joseph married Marie Stuart-Russell and they settled on their
own property, further down Doonan Road below the steep hill. This hill was often called “Misery Hill”, presumably because of its bogginess in wet
