Description

Nestled at the foot of Mount Cooroora, Pomona is a relaxed country town with some pleasant easy walking tracks around delightful parks. Pomona was first settled in the late 1880s and the railway that arrived in 1891 started the expansion of the agricultural industries. Originally known as Pinbarren Siding, the name was changed in 1906 to Pomona, named after the Roman goddess of fruit and orchards. From 1909 until 1980 Pomona was the administrative centre for the former Noosa Shire Council.

Pomona is also the home of the Majestic Cinema, the oldest continuously running silent movie cinema in the world. Built as the Majestic Hall in 1921, it was originally used for social and sporting events and silent movies. 'Talkies' were introduced briefly in 1931, but the cinema reverted back to silent movies and today shows The Son of the Sheik, starring Rudolf Valentino, every Thursday, as well as a host of other events throughout the year.

Discover stories and artefacts that reveal the area's local history at the Noosa Shire Museum. Located in the old Shire Chambers, the displays include photographs of important moments in Pomona's history; a Post Office Exhibit, and a room dedicated to the original inhabitants of the area, the Gubbi Gubbi people.

Pomona is located about 25 minutes from Noosa, just beyond Cooroy and can be experienced as part of an beautiful drive which may include the towns of Cooran, Kin Kin and Boreen Point.
