(3.9/5 based on 25+ reviews for 3 attractions)
Things to do: nightlife, museums
Pomona is a town located at the base of Mount Cooroora at the northern end of the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. The town was originally called Pinbarren Siding and was renamed Pomona in 1906, after the Roman goddess of fruit and orchards. Pomona is 140 kilometres north of Brisbane, and approximately 30 minutes driving time from Noosa Heads. It is within the local government area of Shire of Noosa (between 2008 and 2013 it was within Sunshine Coast Region).HistoryPomona was first settled by Europeans in the late 1880s, but had been home to the Gubbi Gubbi indigenous peoples for thousands of years before that. Pomona is the historic heart of the Noosa Biosphere. Declared by the United Nations Economic, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), World Biosphere Reserves are learning communities that cultivate harmony between people and nature in support of conservation and sustainable development.Early settlers collected timber from the area. The railway to Pomona was operating in 1891, opening the land to farming.Pomona State School was established on 31 August 1897, originally located in Stan Topper Park until 1976. The school is now located on Station Street. (Town streets were named after the functions of buildings located along them - thus the street names include Ambulance St, Church St, School St, Factory St, and so on.)
