Yandina

Yandina is a town and locality in the Sunshine Coast Region, Queensland, Australia. At the, Yandina had a population of 2,221. The Yandina district has a population of around 9,500 people.GeographyYandina is in the Sunshine Coast hinterland just off the Bruce Highway. Its name comes from 'yan', meaning "to go", and 'dinna', meaning "feet".HistoryAboriginal people have lived in the Yandina district for over 40,000 years. They belonged to the Gubbi Gubbi language group which consisted of a number of tribes occupying traditional resource areas. Around Yandina the Undandi tribal area was east of the present day railway line while the Nalbo area was west of the line. Legends, bora rings, pathways, grinding grooves, scarred trees and middens provide evidence of occupancy.European settlement began in the 1850s and the town of Yandina was surveyed in 1870. It was the first town in the Maroochy district. Many of the original buildings and the heritage streetscape of Stevens Street have been preserved. The Anglican church, built initially as a community church and opened in 1880, is the oldest on the Sunshine Coast. The Yandina hotel dates back to 1889 and was relocated using rollers and a bullock team in 1891 when the railway came through town. In the same year, the post office was moved to the new railway station. Privately owned Koongalba homestead is on the National Heritage List and is one of several historic homes in town. Yandina was originally planned to be the centre of the shire but as the local sugar mill was built in Nambour, more and more people who worked there moved closer.
