Rosemount is a rural locality in the Sunshine Coast Region, Queensland, Australia.[2] In the 2016 census, Rosemount had a population of 1585 people.[1]

Geography

Rosemount is located immediately east of Nambour, bordered on its north, east and south by the Petrie and Paynter Creeks.[3] It extends from west of the Bruce Highway to Bli Bli, about six km east.

Upper Rosemount Road roughly follows the ridge of the Rosemount Spur, which is a watershed for both the creeks. 'Rosemount' was an early cane farm on Petrie Creek. Rosemount covers an area of about 1160 hectares or around 12 km². Rosemount varies in elevation up to 130 m above sea level.

As Rosemount is positioned between the major urban centres of Nambour and Maroochydore it has attracted some highly priced rural and residential developments. Most, however, are in a more modest range.

History

In the 1880s farm selections were taken up, almost all for cane-growing.[citation needed]

Rosemount Provisional opened on 7 April 1886. On 1 January 1909 it became Rosemount State School. It closed on 16 September 1946.[4][5] It was also known as Sylvania School.[citation needed]
