THE COMMUNITY OF WAMURAN

Wamuran is a very pretty farming and rural area about 51km north of Brisbane and 11km west of Caboolture.  Situated on the D'Aguilar Highway, with an average elevation of 60 metres, this undulating and fertile farming area sits in the shadow of the D'Aguilar Range to the west and the Glasshouse Mountains to the north. The area has a comfortable and temperate year round climate with an average rainfall of approximately 1270mm.  Population growth has been steady, rising from 285 in 1961 to 2,850 in 2011, [latest census figures].  This steady growth in an area so close to the main shopping and employment areas in Caboolture, the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane ensures the viability and continued growth potential of the area.   Current demographics for the Wamuran area can be found here:  http://localstats.qpzm.com.au/stats/qld/brisbane/outer-northern-suburbs/wamuran

The area is the centre of a large fruit-growing district, “The Fruit Salad Bowl of the Sunshine Coast”, with bananas, lychees, pineapples, strawberries, citrus, avocadoes, pawpaws, custard apples, passionfruit, tropical stone fruit, pecan and Queensland nuts and many other tropical and exotic fruits. Beef cattle, horses, llamas and alpacas and turf production complement the fruit industry.  One of the early sawmills still remains open and working today.
