New ‘it’ suburb is family friendly
CENTRALLY situated on the Sunshine Coast, Palmview is right on the Bruce Highway, with a 10-minute drive to the pristine beaches of Mooloolaba.
Weaved through a network of rehabilitated creeks that are enjoyed through Palmview, the suburb is lined with a number of walkways, making this a family-friendly estate.
With the breathtaking Sunshine Coast Hinterland just 15 minutes up the road, Palmview has it all within reach.
It is home to the well-known Aussie World theme park and The Shed, which are both popular attractions for tourists and locals.
Originating from the famous cartoon in The Australasian Post, creator Ken Maynard started drawing the Ettamogah Pub in 1959.
With numerous meanings of all aspects of the structure, this recognised pub carried an Aboriginal meaning of “place to drink”.
The iconic outback pub went through a brand change, where it saw the name go from the Ettamogah Pub to The Shed.
Built in 1989, the venue today offers meals, live events, music, functions and weddings.
A well-known spot for the car enthusiast, The Shed is a common ground for car lovers to meet and show off their prized possessions.
The opening of Aussie World in 1989 formed part of the large tourism precinct including the Aussie World Retail Village.
There are more than 30 rides and games provided for all ages.
With a mixture of rides that will get you soaked, dizzy or send you flying over bumps, Aussie World will send you on a rollercoaster of a day.
After all, who can resist a ride on a rollercoaster right?
An array of attractions appealing to tourists – Opals Down Under, Skirmish and, of course, the strawberry fields which allow you to pick your own – all add value to Palmview and the attractions it has to offer.
Declared a major development area in October 2016 by the Queensland Regional Plan 2005-2006, Palmview was soon under construction with a residential housing estate.
With a housing development under way, Palmview Forest is fast becoming a popular residential area, where families can enjoy land blocks five times the average.
Palmview Forest offers a close-knit community, while being surrounded by native fauna.
Ideally positioned right in the centre of the Sunshine Coast, Palmview Forest is an easy five-minute drive from the Chancellor Park shopping village, which offers a range of shops, a gym and fast food outlets.
Beaches, Sunshine Plaza, and the Nambour Hospital are all within a 20-minute radius of this estate.
Major upgrades to the Bruce Highway between Caloundra Rd and the Sunshine Coast Motorway will see the highway upgraded to six lanes, which includes upgrades to both interchanges and the service road for local traffic.
Anticipated to start in the latter half of 2016, with major construction starting in 2017, the benefits of this major upgrade will improve the efficiency and reduce traffic congestion.
Offering a family-friendly environment, with a central location, Palmview is soon becoming the new ‘it’ suburb, with all the lifestyle benefits the Sunshine Coast has to offer.
