Yandina is a suburban town located on the Sunshine Coast in the state of Queensland. The town’s name was taken from an Aboriginal word that means “to cross water by foot.” The suburb’s earliest inhabitants settled in the area around 1853. Today, much of the land in Yandina is primarily used for farming such products as ginger and sugarcane. The town has some historical appeal as it has a number of heritage-listed sites such as the Koongalba residential home.
Yandina is located near Nambour, in the Hinterland region of the Sunshine Coast. It is home to local ginger production, including gourmet chocolate-ginger products.
