Diddillibah is a rural/residential suburb immediately west of Maroochydore, where the Eudlo and Petrie Creeks enter the Maroochy River. The suburb's northern boundary follows the Petrie Creek upstream for about 2 km and then the Paynter Creek for about 6 km to Woombye.

It is thought that Diddillibah was named after an Aboriginal expression indicating a carpet snake; it was also spelt 'Didillibah' until 1994.
