Landers Shoot is a suburb of the Sunshine Coast, Queensland in Australia. Edmund Lander leased the area known as the Mooloolah Back Plain from the Queensland colonial government in 1861. He, along with other pioneers, harvested the timber along the Blackall Range in the Sunshine Coast hinterland.
When the timber was harvested, the bark was stripped, making them slippery from the sap and a sharp point was made on one end of the tree. The tree was then pushed over the eastern side of the cliff down "chutes" (to be collected at the bottom, and transported to the nearest mills).
Landers Shoot (a corruption of Lander's Chute) was the base region where the logs arrived at the base of the cliff.
