......."YOU can be at POMONA!......

All you have to do is..........

when runners from around the world try to conquer the 4.5km mountain race to the top & back in less than 25minutes!

Go for a wander around the Town

Pomona, located at the foot of 439 metre high, Mount Cooroora,
was first settled in the late 1880's as Pinbarren Siding.

In 1906, Pinbarren Siding was renamed Pomona, named after the Roman goddess of fruit and orchards.

A wander into the old Shire Chambers, and there are displays of photographs of important moments in Pomona's history, Post Office Exhibit, and a room about the local people, the Gubbi Gubbi.

The Pub in the photo was built in 1906 with the second story added in 1913. The Pub has a Ghost named Darby, after Darby Schrieder who lived in Pomona all his life! .

Pomona is also the home of the Majestic Cinema, the oldest continuously running silent movie cinema in the world.
