Location
Maroochydore is an urban centre on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, located 104 km north of Brisbane. Andrew Petrie during his 1842 exploration of the coast gave the name Maroochydore to the area. It was derived from the word “murukutchi-dha” in the language of the Brisbane River Aboriginal people who accompanied Petrie on his exploration. It literally means “the place of the red bills” that is the black swans.
