/ˈɪŋəm/ (say 'inguhm)

a town in north-eastern Qld, on the Herbert River; sugar cane.
European settlement in the lower Herbert River valley, on lands traditionally inhabited by the Nyawaygi people, dates from 1865. In the 1880s the development of the sugar and pastoral industries led to growth of the town of Ingham. From 1891 migrants from Italy provided much of the labour in the canefields, with a major wave of immigration occurring from 1920 to 1939. Sugar remains the main industry and Ingham's Victoria sugar mill is the largest crushing plant in Australia. The town lays claim to having the original `pub with no beer', as American servicemen drank it dry celebrating the Coral Sea victory in 1942.
