Currimundi is a coastal suburb 3 km north of Caloundra central. Its northern border is the Currimundi Creek (now Currimundi Lake, the watercourse having been blocked by a sand bar). Another nearby waterway is the Coondibah Creek, once backed by an extensive lagoon. Much of it adjoins the Currimundi Recreation Camp, formerly a National Fitness Camp.

It is thought that the name (1845) was derived from an Aboriginal word referring to a place inhabited by the flying foxes.
