Upper Rosemount Road roughly follows the ridge of the Rosemount Spur, which is a watershed for both the creeks. 'Rosemount' was an early cane farm on Petrie Creek. Rosemount covers an area of about 1160 hectares or around 12 kmĀ². Rosemount varies in elevation up to 130 m above sea level.

As Rosemount is positioned between the major urban centres of Nambour and Maroochydore it has attracted some highly priced rural and residential developments. Most, however, are in a more modest range.

History

In the 1880s farm selections were taken up, almost all for cane-growing. A primary school was opened in 1886, continuing at least until 1956 according to Queensland Archives. It was also known as Sylvania school.
