Young Women's Christian Association, Townsville, Archive
The first Townsville branch of the Young Women's Christian Association (YWCA) was formed in 1889 by Mrs Felicia Hopkins who at this time also initiated branches in Brisbane, Rockhampton, Ipswich, Bundaberg and Esk. With the exception of Rockhampton branch, however, all had collapsed within a few years. Hopkins remained undaunted though and, having received a £50 grant from Lady Fairfax, began to establish branches again, including in Townsville. A new branch was formed in 1899 with seven members of whom Mrs C. H. Hodges was the first president and Mrs W. McKenzie the First Honorary Secretary.
Within a few months, members had established accommodation cottages and also met the British-India line ships that called into Townsville monthly with British migrants. Stating with pride that no woman or girl ever landed in Townsville without being invited on the very day of arrival to a welcoming YWCA "At Home" function, the branch was also conscious of providing welcomes and accommodation to women and girls, and the organisation's hostel, Tremayne, located in the city was an important asset for providing such a service. The Denham Street hostel which opened in 1920 was often full to capacity. A cafeteria was added in 1922. During WWII the hostel was taken over for military purposes but re-opened for business at war's end. By this time, however, young women were not so keen on abiding by hostel rules and as patronage declined, Tremayne eventually ceased operation.
From the YWCA's inception, many social and sporting clubs were formed bearing names such as Adastra, Amici, Mosno, Myola, Yreepi, Alexandra, Athena, A2, Pioneers, Book Club, Luncheon Club, Business Girls' Dinner Club, Wirrina, Arana, Slimmers, Swimmers, Card Players, Live Y-ers, and a Women's Outdoor Activities Group.
