Peachester is a rural town on the slopes of the Conondale Range in the Sunshine Coast of Queensland. The small town was named after the peach trees growing by the river when the area was surveyed in 1988. Shortly after that, the Peachester School was established in the village. Inigo Jones, a well-known weather forecaster, lived in Peachester from the 1930s to the 1950s.
Early industries in the town included timber felling, dairying and case factories. By the 1970s, many of the dairy farms were sold and case factories closed in favour of turning the area into a more rural and residential town. Currently, Peachester has a Uniting Church, a general store, two recreation reserves, a school and a public hall.
