STYLE EUMUNDI, SUNSHINE COAST. AUSTRALIA
“Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way to live.”
We headed to Eumundi Markets to highlight a great small business, Style Eumundi. This is one of Kim’s favourite fashion shops in Eumundi.
Famous for its artisan culture, the Eumundi Markets have a major emphasis on fashion. This is the place where many local designers get their big break and create a loyal following. As a result, the bustling and enduringly popular markets feature everything from children’s clothing to apparel, summer dresses, jewellery, hats, shoes and handbags, and chances are the stallholder you meet is the very person who designed and created the piece.
The Eumundi Markets are renowned as the biggest and best art and craft markets in Australia and have a culture of “make it, bake it, sew it, grow it”, meaning most of what’s available is hand-made and unique to the Sunshine Coast District.
If art is food for your creative soul, then Eumundi has a banquet on offer. From Tina Cooper’s glorious, vibrant glass gallery to the intricate Indigenous artwork of Red Desert Gallery, the town’s artistic offerings are enlightening and inspiring.
Eumundi newcomer Artisan’s Gallery is worth a visit for its fine art and timber work, and don’t miss the contemporary street art on show at Generator Gallery.
While the town itself is small, Eumundi’s passion for style is enormous. The Emporium offers an abundance of women’s clothing, jewellery and accessories, along with some gorgeous, on-trend homewares.
The aptly named Eumundi Style boutique stocks an exclusive range of colourful garments. They are a lifestyle store, which specialise in natural fibres and Australian designers.
Kim loves the store and the ranges that they stock are a tribute to Aussie girls. They are proud to support Aussie labels and pay tribute to their amazing designs, fabrics and have an extraordinary variety under one banner EUMUNDI STYLE and the women at Pearls for Girls will help you find the perfect piece of pearl, turquoise or amber jewellery.
Eumundi is renowned for its music scene and the town’s weekly line-up is unlikely to disappoint those in need of some music therapy.
While Kim enjoyed shopping, I took the opportunity to check out The Imperial Hotel. The Imperial Hotel and Eumundi Brewery really is a jewel of the Noosa hinterland, with its colourful creative décor and murals, wide verandahs, sensational beer garden and relaxed vibe. The impressive hotel menu features their spin on classic pub favourites along with a selection of contemporary dishes – guaranteed to appeal to all the foodies in your tribe.
And when it comes to the brews, Eumundi Brewery Lager and Eumundi Brewery Pale Ale have become firm favourites with locals and tourists alike.
I took a 60 minute Eumundi Brewery Tasting Tour, where I got to explore the 100 year-old hotel and brewery. We heard about the history of brewing in Eumundi, learnt about the beer making process and enjoyed a ‘tasting log’ (Eumundi is an old timber town after all!) of the local brews.
The hotel is also a great place to soak up live music grooves. Guests will enjoy acoustic sets in the beer garden all weekend + see some of the best bands in the business playing ticketed shows in the entertainment spaces known as ‘The Bunker’, ‘The Green Room’ and ‘The Brewery’.
The Imperial Hotel in Eumundi is a strikingly vibrant hotel, offering visitors a multitude of reasons to visit. In my opinion, it’s the perfect location destination for “where shall we meet?” – throw excellent food plus fabulous ambience into the equation and we have a sure-fire winner!
