Eumundi is a small town on the Sunshine Coast hinterland, 21 km south-west of Noosa Heads and 118 km north of Brisbane. Nearby towns are Yandina and Cooroy. The town's name is believed to come from the Kabi name Ngumundi, the name of a local Indigenous clan leader. The locality's original name was Eerwah; this was changed to avoid confusion with the nearby town of Beerwah.
