    Notes 
    • Colonial and Indian Exhibition, London 1886
      Timber-getters moved into the area. By the early 1870s there was a blacksmith, a number of teamsters and a timber mill. A settlement was beginning to form. The first selection of land at the present site of Maleny was made by Isaac Burgess on 13 November 1878. Slowly the land was cleared and dairy and beef cattle were brought into the area to feed on the rich grasses which were produced by a generous annual rainfall (2056 mm) which soaked the rich red volcanic soils of the range. No one knows exactly where the town's name came from but it is likely that it is a misspelt version of a tiny Scottish hamlet named Malleny.
      (Click here to view a photo of Malleny House in Scotland) <http://www.geo.ed.ac.uk/scotgaz/features/featurefirst8143.html> A piece of information of interest about Isaac Burgess, one of the founding settlers of Maleny can be found in "The London News" dated August 28 1886 and it dealt in considerable detail about the splendors of the Queensland exhibits at the Colonial and Indian Exhibition which was held in South Kensington, Londonin May of that year. It spoke about Isaac Burgess:-
      "Isaac Burgess of Maleny supplied two logs of cedar: one, 12 feet 10 inches in length by 20 feet 5 inches in girth; the other, 12 feet 7 inches in length, by 18 feet 8 inches in girth. These logs stood erect, one on either side of the Court. They attracted a considerable amount of attention from visitors, on account of their great size; they were in a round state, having only the bark off, except that a small part on one face had been dressed or flattened, and polished - to show how, in the hands of the cabinet maker the wood could be worked up for furniture purposes.
      Examining these carefully showed that the magnificent trees or tree, from which these logs were cut, had stood until past the prime of life, and had some time since thrown off the bark, a little decay of the alburnum or sap-wood being observable near the base. Except for this, their top ends and exterior, which was nearly cylindrical, had a healthy appearance, and looked in good condition; hence they would yield a large quantity of serviceable timber for the cabinet maker and manufacturer of fancy articles."
      Isaac Burgess was the first settler of both the Mellum Creek (Landsborough) and Maleny areas. One can only marvel at how these great logs were transported from the mountain slopes to the port of Brisbane, lifted aboard ship, and transported across the ocean to be put on show at the exhibition."
      The medal won by Isaac as a result of this exhibition is on show at the Landsborough Historic Museum thanks to his family. The timber was last sighted at a London Museum in the 1930's.
