POMONA

Pomona is a town our traveler will pass through on route to Gympie via Tewantin and the Cooroy. Pomona is a small town also and as is the case Cooroy have all of the key essential services. There is a positive element about the place.

Pomona is located at the base of Mount Cooroora at the northern end of the Sunshine Coast? The town was originally called Pinbarren siding and was renamed Pomona in 1906, after the Roman goddess of fruit and orchards.

Pomona was settled in the late 1880s and the railway to Pomona was opened in 1891. The town became the administrative centre of the Noosa Shire in 1909. The original headquarters for the Shire were constructed in Pomona in 1911 on a site now used (since 1985) by the Cooroora Historical Society and Noosa Museum.

Pomona is notable for two things: the heritage-listed Majestic Theatre (not photographed) and the annual King of the Mountain race up the nearby, Mount Cooroora.

The Pomona Hotel is a cracker. The classic Qld pub,

The Pomona Churches are a mix of old and new.

An exhaustive drive around and walk failed to turn up the Pomona War Memorial.

The hotel pre determines refreshment. Time your visit to Pomona for the evening.
