Sugarcane plantations in Feluga, 2007
|Area||6.3 km2 (2.4 sq mi)|
|LGA(s)||Cassowary Coast Region|
The Bruce Highway is the eastern boundary of the locality. The North Coast railway line runs parallel and immediately west of the highway but there are no railway stations serving the locality. There is a network of cane tramways to deliver sugarcane to the sugar mill in Tully.
The locality takes its name from the railway station name, which in turn was named by the Queensland Railways Department on 25 November 1921. The name is believed to be corrupted version of a Palestinian place name El Faluje, a town was occupied by Australian Light Horse troops (4th Brigade) on 10 November 1917.
Feluga Provisional School opened on 7 February 1927, becoming Feluga State School c. 1934.
