209 - Thornsborough / Thornborough

Thornsborough post office, 45 km west of Mareeba opened on 14 June 1876 at Thornborough. It appears that the variant name was due to a spelling error when the post office was gazetted in the Queensland Government Gazette. The mistake was oficially corrected in November 1885 when the post office was renamed Thornborough in November 1885 however the existing Thornsborough datestamp continued to be used
