Mudjimba is a suburb in the Sunshine Coast Region, Queensland, Australia, and forms part of the Maroochydore urban centre.[2]

History[edit]

Mudjimba gets its name from the local plant, the Midyam (Austromyrtus) bush.[2][3]

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

Attractions[edit]

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