Family & Cosmetic Dental Clinic Pomona, QLD
When fruit growing rather than timber chopping and dairy farming finally became established on the Sunshine Coast, Pinbarren Siding was rechristened Pomona after the ancient Roman goddess of fruitful abundance. She is said to watch over and protect fruit trees, gardens and orchards and to care for their cultivation. Most unusually, Pomona does not have a Greek equivalent. Paintings show her with a platter of fruit or a cornucopia. Constant Lambert wrote the music for a ballet dedicated to her, which was choreographed by Frederick Ashton, and Vanessa Bell created the scenery and costumes for it.
Biosphere reserves are areas comprising terrestrial, marine and coastal ecosystems. Each reserve promotes solutions reconciling the conservation of biodiversity with its sustainable use.
Pomona is at the base of Mount Cooroora, north of Brisbane and about half a hour inland from Noosa Heads. It is adjacent to Tuchekoi National Park and partly in Yurol State Forest, which is preserved as a koala habitat. It is also a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve — “a learning community that cultivates harmony between people and nature in support of conservation and sustainable development.”
Thong throwing and pie eating competitions
Every other October the Great Noosa Trail Walk is held over the 100 km Noosa Trail Network of walking tracks through the surrounding forest, farmland and villages. And, on the fourth Sunday of every July, 100 competitors have to run up the goat track to the top of Mount Cooroora and back in under 30 minutes for the annual King of the Mountain Festival — something that started in 1958 as a bet in a pub! Runners come from all over Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific Rim and the United Kingdom — and of course there is a particular sense of competition between Australia and New Zealand.
