Coen has had a mixed history of being a mining town and a major cattle centre. Gold was discovered on the Coen River in 1876 and the town came into being first as a small fort built by gold miners and prospectors. The Great Northern mine operated until 1916 and in that period produced over 50,000 ounces of gold. The local Aboriginal people found work on the newly established cattle stations where they became stockmen and domestic labour. In the late 1970s, the introduction of equal wages for Aboriginal pastoral workers saw the disappearance of station work for many Aboriginal people, and the permanent population of Coen swelled to its present size. More recently, two satellite communities outside of Coen – Port Stewart to the Southeast, and Merepah to the West have been established on behalf of the Aboriginal Community The State Government also funded the construction of houses at Coen during the 1970. Today Coen has a population of around 300 and makes the perfect rest stop for travelers in Cape York Peninsula. The town has lovely camping spots both in town and outside along the Coen river, a waste disposal site, public toilets and some shady parks which make great picnic sites Coen also has a variety of facilities for travellers with shops. providing groceries, ice and beverages.
