It is one of the main rail/bus interchanges for TransLink bus services to the Sunshine Coast.HistoryLandsborough was named for the British born explorer William Landsborough who was the first European to cross Australia north to south. The earliest European settlers arrived in the area in 1871. Originally called Mellum Creek ("mellum is Aboriginal for "volcano"), it dates from 1871 when Isaac Burgess erected a slab hut with bark roof as "port of call" for Cobb and Co coaches stopping for refreshments and a change of horses.Mellum Creek Post Office opened on 23 January 1881. It was renamed Landsborough in 1890.In the past Landsborough was one of the larger towns of the Sunshine Coast having a large logging industry. In comparison beachside Caloundra was a fishing village to its east, as opposed to the larger popular tourist destination it is today.
