Yaroomba is a suburb in the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. It is also the site of an historic 150 year old ship wreck, a piece of which was found in 2007.[1] The suburb began life as a housing estate named Coronation Beach in 1953 in honour of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth. The name was changed to Yaroomba, which means "surf on the beach", in 1961. [2]
