About Wamuran

Wamuran is a rural suburb comprised of a mix of small acreage properties and farms. Located west of Caboolture southeast of D’Aguilar at the foothills of magnificent Glasshouse Mountains.

Wamuran is renowned as a major farming region best known for its luscious strawberries and juicy pineapple. Locals and visitors are welcome to purchase some of the delicious fruits straight from the sheds on selected farms.

Town facilities include a local shopping centre, a public hall, a fruit growers association and a primary school.

The new, Caboolture to Wamuran Rail Trail has recently opened its first stage. The trail is being constructed to showcase the history of the Caboolture to Kilcoy railway corridor, which has been closed since 1964, and provide a shared pathway from Caboolture to Wamuran. This pathway will provide links between major areas in Caboolture and Wamuran, stretching 10.5km from Beerburrum Road in Caboolture to Atwood Street in Wamuran. The pathway will be 3-3.5m metres wide, providing plenty of room for bikers and walkers to share the trail.

History of Wamuran

Wamuran takes its name from its railway station, which was named in 1909 after local Aboriginal man, Menvil Wamuran (also known as Jacky Delaney). He is recorded as being an Aboriginal leader and as an employee of an early settler who named his banana plantation 'Wamuran'.

Timber cutters and selectors settled at Wamuran in the 1880s, and in the early 1900s new selectors moved into the dense scrub that covered Wamuran Basin and the foothills of Mount Mee. Many planted bananas, and the opening of the railway line through Wamuran gave improved access to the Brisbane markets.

Wamuran maintained a steady population level until the 1980s when new housing began to be built.
