Travel Tips for Maroochydore

SUNSHINE COAST

by pedroswift

"Maroochydore"

Central Sunshine Coast River Town.
Several very good restaurants attract us to Maroochy a couple of times a year.

Derivation of the Name - "Maroochdore"
Maroochydore/Maroochy

The name Maroochydore is derived from two words of the Yuggera (Brisbane River) language, i.e. Muru-kutchi — meaning red-bill, the name of the black swan. Maroochydore is from Murukutchi-dha, the place of the black swan.

The name of the swan abbreviated by Aboriginal usage to Murukutchi, hence Maroochy. This name was not given by local natives, but by Andrew Petrie, an original settler of SE Qld, when on an exploration trip of the coast in 1842. Petrie had two Brisbane River Aboriginal men with him from whom, presumably, he obtained the name. The local name for the swan is Kuluin. The name Maroochydore came into general use in 1884. Perhaps it would have been easier to pronounce had it been given the name 'Koolone'?
