Commentary

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.

 

Mention the suburb Eumundi and the fantastic local markets are often the first thing that springs to mind. Offering a relaxed village lifestyle, Eumundi is best known for its Wednesday and Saturday markets which attract thousands of visitors each week. The markets showcase more than 200 handicraft stalls, including hand made products, locally grown flowers, arts and crafts, and fresh produce.

Part of the art and craft gallery trail, Eumundi is home to several diverse galleries, including some specific to indigenous Australian art and others featuring investment and contemporary paintings. The historical town of Eumundi is filled with interesting shops, dining venues and romantic bed and breakfast accommodation.

 

Notable former residents include the former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, and the tennis player Pat Rafter.
