Nambour


Nambour was settled in the 1860s by miners disappointed after the poor returns from the goldfields at Gympie, just north. Today it is a thriving rural community a short distance west of the Sunshine Coast, and features many government offices and public facilities such as the Nambour Hospital. Nearby is a macadamia nut factory, a winery and many other things to see. Nambour is about 100 kilometres north of Brisbane.
