Yandina 150 Years Celebrated

Yandina 150
Welcome to Yandina 150 where we shared the stories of Yandina from September 2020 to April 2021 as our town celebrated a very special birthday.

Sometimes referred to as ‘the original workers town’ of the hinterland, Yandina is also the oldest surveyed town in the Maroochy District.

The Sunshine Coast has been occupied by indigenous people for thousands of years and the area where Yandina developed is the home of the traditional owners of the land, the Gubbi Gubbi people.

After European settlement began in 1868, the town was officially gazetted in September 1870. Yandina started as a logging town, then a farming district before becoming what it is today, a growing town that takes pride in its history while forging a prosperous future.

We have presented some highlights of the past and showcased our town and its people today.
