Discover Eumundi Heritage and Visitor Centre is housed in the old Methodist Church and is one of the most visited museums on the Sunshine Coast with an estimated 10,000 visitors per year.

The museum displays start with its collection of Aboriginal artefacts. Significantly, two local Aboriginal groups, the Undambi and the Dalungbara, have given their agreement for the Eumundi Museum to be a keeping place for their artefacts.

Well designed and produced displays depict the area’s natural and social history including early white settlement, development of the area and many industries such as timber getting, dairying, the railway and the hospital. Eumundi’s world famous markets, established 1979, feature in the museum’s contemporary history displays.

Discover Eumundi’s extensive collection of historic photographs is accessible for family research and reference. Over 3,500 photos capture the natural, social and commercial environment of Eumundi and surrounding districts from the 1880s to the present.
