Deeral is a remote suburban town located near Cairns, in Tropical North Queensland. Originally named Munros Creek, after a local resident W. Munro. It was in 1907 that the suburb adopted its current name, which was likely derived from an Aboriginal term that means 'teeth.'
The sugar cane industry has been a significant part of the town's local economy and employment sectors since 1925. Deeral's post office recorded 25 sugar cane farms in 1949, a record for the time. Aside from sugar cane farming, the community has easy access to inland fishing, boating, and a combination of residential and rural holdings.
