Belvedere is a locality in the Cassowary Coast Region, Queensland, Australia.[1]

Geography[edit]

Belvedere is a low-lying locality (approx 10-20 metres above sea level) to the east of the Johnstone River. The Palmerston Highway forms the western boundary of the locality, joining the Bruce Highway at the northern tip of the locality. There is some suburban housing in the north-west and east of the locality with other areas used for farming crops including sugarcane.[2]

History[edit]

The name Belvedere was the name of the land development project and became the locality name on 2 June 1984. The name was chosen because the estate had good views just like a belvedere.[1]
