Did you know that Yandina is the oldest surveyed town in the Maroochy District? Early history tells how access by river made Yandina important for timber getting, dairying, fruit growing and cane growing. Changes in methods of transport and new industries continue to make Yandina vibrant.
 
Yandina Hotel
The Yandina Hotel is the oldest licensed Hotel in Queensland.  It was built in 1889 on the corner of Farrell Street and Old Gympie Rd.  In 1891 it was moved to its present site on Stevens Street. While the hotel was being moved they continued to serve beer and upstairs Mrs Sommer, the owner's wife, gave birth to a son. 
 
There are many historic sites in Yandina, originally know as "Native Dog Flat". In 1853 Daniel & Zacharis Skyring were granted leases on two Cattle Runs, “Canando” and “Yandina” which had frontage to the north banks of the South Maroochy and Maroochy Rivers.
 
The first “Yandina Post Office” was opened in 1868 on the north bank of the Maroochy River just upstream of Dunethin Rock.
