well as national stars of stage, screen and sport). Nambour’s appeal now, as it always has been, is that it is a country township where housing radiates from its main street and shopping precinct, and where residents can bank, shop and access a wide range of government services from one parking spot. This means it is also a good place to find a job. Residential development was always consistent but took off in the 1970s and has continued
steadily since, with the opening of new estates and the expansion of the town’s borders. It now officially includes the area south to Woombye including Coes Creek, Perwillowen, Burnside and Towen Mountain and north to Wappa Falls Road near Yandina, including Parklands, Kulangoor and Kiamba. To the west, collections of houses have taken a life of their own and become officially recognised as Nambour Heights, Highworth and Image Flat. Higher up the Blackall Range foothills, Kureelpa and Dulong offer fabulous views down the Maroochy River Valley, and Panorama Drive in the east is also a high point with range or coast views. This expansion of boundaries and the rise of neighbourhood convenience stores have extended Nambour’s lifestyle options way beyond the original town’s urban heart to include a wide choice of allotment locations and sizes in rural acreage and smart new residential estates. The population now stands at around 15,000, but density for the whole 5804 hectares that make up Nambour and Burnside district remains an easy 2.59 people per hectare. While retaining a distinctive hinterland town amenity, Nambour is in fact only a 20-minute drive from Maroochydore. This is reflected in
