The Sunshine Coast area was first settled by European settlers in the 1800s. Many of the towns in the area began as ports for the timber industry that was booming. During the Gold Rush in the latter half of the 1800s the roadways in the area developed to accommodate for larger transport loads and trade. By the beginning of the 20th century the area of Sunshine Coast rapidly developed, helped largely by the influx of tourism due to it becoming a favoured surfing retreat. During the 1960s and 1970s, the city began to attract developments such as theme parks, tourist attractions, and increasing residential estates.
