Mudjimba is a suburb of the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia, and forms part of the Maroochydore urban centre. Mudjimba gets its name from the local plant, the Midyam bush[citation needed].

Sunshine Coast Airport is located adjacent to the suburb; the Sunbus depot is near the airport.

Recently the ex-HMAS Brisbane was scuttled five kilometers off the coast.

Approximately 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) off the coast sits Mudjimba Island. Also known as Old Woman Island and Kong's Island this is arguably the best surf break in the Sunshine Coast Region.

Mudjimba is home to the Mudjimba Surf Life Saving Club.[2] The club was founded in 1996.
