History behind the name

Named after Thomas Behan, appointed in March 1887 as engineer surveyor to the Cairns Divisional Board. Prior to being named Behana Creek it was known as Walker's Creek. The tramway siding at Behana was known until June 1900 as Walkers Siding. The Aboriginal name for Behana Creek was, according to Archibald Meston, "Tringilburra".
