Welcome to Eumundi
While the weatherboard pubs, broad verandahs and tin-roof cottages evoke classic rural Queensland, historic Eumundi is a sensitive soul. Here, utes, weathered faces and XXXX beer live side by side with chai lattes, free-spirited artists and one of the region's best bookshops. The hilly hamlet is most famous for its Eumundi Markets, a twice-weekly, hippy-hearted sprawl of crafts, clothing, produce and artisanal bites, shaded under heritage-listed fig trees. The town's name is believed to derive from 'Ngumundi' or 'Huomundy', the name of a local Aboriginal elder said to have adopted escaped convict David Bracewell as his son in 1831.
