The Coast Salish First Nation tribe of the shishalh people resided in the area on the Sunshine Coast we now know as Roberts Creeks. These ancient tribal members referred to Roberts Creek as "hwah-sam", which means big fat salmon!

Following the arrival of Spanish Captians and British Captain Vancouver, the first white settler here to stake claim to his crown grant was Thomas William Roberts, in 1889. He and his family, who arrived a year later, played an enormous roll in the small communities early history, hence, the name Roberts Creek.
