Woombye is a town located on the Sunshine Coast hinterland in Queensland, Australia, approximately 100km north of the Brisbane CBD. The name is derived from words from the local Aboriginal language - a place (wumbai) of black snake, or (wambai) black myrtle or axe handle made from black myrtle. Woombye has a population of 2,094, as measured in the 2006 census.The small township of Woombye is surrounded by what were once pineapple farms, which today are acreage properties and gated communities. Woombye is home to one of the longest established soccer clubs on the Sunshine Coast, the Woombye Snakes. Woombye is also the location of an Australian tourist icon The Big Pineapple.Woombye is accessible by Translink trains and buses. The town is centered on its railway station on the North Coast railway line with numerous rail services departing for Brisbane daily.HistoryFollowing the discovery of gold at Gympie in 1867, the Government built a road connecting Brisbane to Gympie. It was completed in October 1868 and by November, Cobb & Co coaches were carrying passengers, mail, goods and gold between Brisbane and Gympie. Ten staging depots were established along the route, where horses and fodder were kept. One of these depots was 'Middle Camp', half way between Brisbane and Gympie. Here Cobb & Co built the only accommodation for passengers along its route, and the inn and its surrounding buildings soon became known as Cobb's Camp Hotel.
