Landsborough

Urban

Landsborough, gateway to the Blackall Range and to the Mary Valley, is one of the historic townships of the Sunshine Coast. From 1868, it grew behind the wheels of Cobb and Co. coaches as they followed the tree line blazed by Tom Petrie to Gympie gold, discovered by James Nash in 1867. The historic town bears the name of one of Australia’s most successful explorers, William Landsborough. The social history of the Caloundra region can also be traced at the Landsborough Museum and businesses like the Landsborough Hotel offer an authentic slice of the town’s history.

Close to Landsborough is Ewen Maddock Dam with walking trails and picnic spots to enjoy. There is also a swimming spot for a dip in the dam. Families will especially love the award winning Pioneer Park in Landsborough built especially to cater for active kids and those with special needs.
