Very soon after I moved to the Sunshine Coast I visited Woombye...well it is next door to Palmwoods(where I lived at that time) but what took me there was dancing in the Woombye Hall.
There were dances during the week and dance lessons as well...ballroom and line dancing.
And suppers were the old fashioned kind. And they still dance there.
Once Woombye carried farm supplies...there were pineapples, avocados growing in the district and livestock...but guess what....someone built houses on much of the farmland and now those who cannot afford the coastal areas, or want to be on the train line or just prefer an almost rural feel live in Woombye.
No not 'it'...how to say' Woombye'....most of us say 'woomm...bye'...
but it used to be more like 'wumbe' if that makes any sense....well acoording to the old timers..
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.
Well nearly everything....there is a butcher, a baker, a candlestick maker...as the old song goes.
Well there is a great supermarket...and a dentist and a doctor as well....
Woombye is on the train line which is a bonus for travelling with out a car. And the local RSL Club has a courtesy bus service.
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...and slowly coming to life again after years of being dormant.
