Woombye used to be called Cobb’s Camp due to the fact that it was a staging post for the Cobb & Co coaches. The local pub celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2000, and is certainly worth a visit.
Woombye is home to luscious sub-tropical fruits, and the popular Macadamia nut. The macadamia, of course, used to be known as the Queensland Nut – until some generous soul introduced Hawaiians to its taste and growth potential.
The township is located off the Bruce Highway, west of Maroochydore. It is also the location of the Big Pineapple – so big you can’t miss it!
