Hartley Street in the suburb of Bungalow in Cairns City, Portsmith is named after Robert Taylor Hartley, one of the Customs Officers in David Spence’s official landing party of 1876. He became Subcollector of Customs at Cairns in 1882 and also led the Church of England serve when the clergyman from Port Douglas was absent. He was a member of the first Health Board of Cairns, appointed on 9 July 1881, as well as being the Police Magistrate. The street used to lead to Malay Town that was situated among the mangroves in the big bend of Alligator Creek. The area has since been cleared and reclaimed and is now occupied by oil tanks.
