1. Eumundi Markets

 

The Eumundi markets is the main drawcard for the historic town of Eumundi. It attracts thousands of visitors to its 300-plus stalls which has everything from handcrafted furniture and jewellery to homemade clothes and alternative-healing booths.

For more information, check out our Eumundi Markets article.

 

 

2. Black Fulla Dreaming Eumundi

If you’re interested in Aboriginal culture, head to Black Fulla Dreaming in Eumundi. It’s an Aboriginal-owned and operated shop that sells indigenous products including boomerangs and didjeridus hand-painted by Aboriginal artists. You can also learn about the Aboriginal culture at one of the boomerang-throwing or didjeridu demonstrations or watch a dance performance by the Gubbi Gubbi dancers.

Black Fulla Dreaming is located at 39 Memorial Drive and is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 4:30pm.

 

 

3. Pomona

 

If you want to explore the area, head 18km northwest to the little village of Pomona which sits in the shadow of looming Mt Cooroora (440m). This village is home to the wonderful Majestic Theatre, one of the only places in the world where you can see a silent movie accompanied by the original Wurlitzer organ soundtrack. For 21 years (until 2007) the theatre played only one film – Rudolph Valentino’s The Son of the Sheikh, every Thursday night. A recent spruce up has seen the addition of a restaurant and the reintroduction of talkies but the focus remains on the silent screen. For a step back in history, catch a screening of the iconic The Son of the Sheikh at 8pm on the first Thursday of each month. The Majestic Theatre is located at 3 Factory Street and is open Thursday to Sunday nights.

 

 

4. Best of Eumundi Restaurants

If you’re visiting Eumundi, you must try some of the delicious local produce at one of their restaurants or cafes. Below are the names of some of best restaurants and cafes in Eumundi.

 

 

Spirit House Restaurant – Although not technically in Eumundi but rather 11km south in Yandina, Spirit House Restaurant sits at the top of the list. If you like Southeast Asian cuisine, you have to try the dishes here. Try some of their Thai-infused innovations such as whole crispy reef fish with tamarind and chilli or citrus scallops with fresh coconut. The dishes are backed up with a subtropical surrounding creating an authentic Southeast Asian setting. You can also opt for one of their cooking classes if the food inspires you enough.

Spirit House Restaurant is located at Ninderry Road in Yandina and is open daily for lunch and from Wednesday to Saturday for dinner.

 

Green Bean Café – If shopping at Eumundi markets tires you out, head to Green Bean Café located directly opposite the markets for a wholesome wrap, burger or a light meal. With large windows opening onto the main street, you’ll still feel part of the market-day action.

Green Bean Café is open for breakfast and lunch from Tuesday to Saturday.

 

Treefellers Café – This café is popular for its humungous Treefellers ‘all-day breakfast’. Located at 69 Memorial Drive, Treefellers Café is open for breakfast Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday, for lunch Wednesday to Sunday and for dinner Thursday to Saturday.

 

Berkelouw Café – If you can’t any other café or restaurant open, head to Berkelouw Café which is open daily and specialises in coffee, cakes and muffins. Located at 87 Memorial Drive, Berkelouw Café is open daily from 7:30am to 5pm.

 

 

5. Best of Eumundi Accommodation

If you’re planning on staying overnight in Eumundi, take a look at the accommodation options below which are the best in town.

 

 

Harmony Hill Station – This accommodation option is very different to anything you’ve stayed in before. Perched on a hilltop in a 5-hectare property, this restored and fully self-contained 1912 purple railway carriage is sure to get the romance juices flowing. Share the grounds with grazing kangaroos, watch the sunset from Lover’s Leap and share a bottle of wine beneath a stunning night sky. Breakfast and dinner hampers can also be arranged on request.

Harmony Hill Station is located at 81 Seib Road.

 

Hidden Valley B&B – Similar to Harmony Hill Station, Hidden Valley have also converted railway carriages into unique accommodation. Here, they have themed rooms such as Aladdin’s Cave, the Emperors Suite or the Hinterland Retreat.

Hidden Valley B&B is located at 39 Caplick Way 1km from Eumundi on the Noosa road.
