Eumundi, a rural village in hilly country around the upper reaches of the North Maroochy River, is 15 km inland from Peregian Beach and 110 km north of central Brisbane. It was named after an Aboriginal elder who reputedly adopted a convict runaway, David Bracefield (or Bracewell, Bracefell) in the early 1830s.
