"Cobbs Road - a street of views and trees"

Coming into the road from either end you'll be greeted by trees, some reaching over the road to make an archway. This not only makes the streetscape beautiful and inviting, but also helps cut down on the early morning and late afternoon sun glare on the east-west parts of the road. Not being a dead end street, there is a small amount of traffic other than residents. Most trucks do not use Cobbs Road as they are directed to use Foley/Mackenzie Road and are "not allowed" to use Cobbs Road as a detour. It is not advisable for kids to play on the road due to this traffic.
Walking the dog, many of the neighbours will at least give you a smile or a wave, many will stop to have a chat - even if it is about the dog. A few of the neighbourhood dogs will give a friendly bark as you pass by hoping for a pat. It is also a pleasant (approx 30mins) walk into the character filled town of Woombye.
Many of the houses, particularly the ones on the northern/eastern side of the road, have views across the farmland on the plains of Paynters Creek. This provides a picturesque backdrop for their homes and lovely cooling breezes flowing up the hill that are great in summer.
Pros
  • Views accross Paynter Creek's valley with farmland
  • Friendly neighbours and neighbourhood dogs
  • Within the catchment of a great State primary school
Cons
  • Technically a main road so has the odd truck that should be using Foley/Mackenzie Roads
  • No paved footpath and road shoulder narrows in places
  • Leafy nature of road allows for some undesireable natives (snakes & ticks)
Recommended for
  • Professionals
  • Families with kids
  • Retirees

"Beautiful views"

One of the first things you notice about Cobbs Road as you turn in off Nambour Connection Road is the big trees that Canopy over the road. Cobbs Road consists of mainly older homes. Some of the homes have some beautiful views of the surrounding area.
