The powerhouse of Eumundi. Former Cantabrians, Paul and Nicky Thomas relocated to the Sunshine Coast and are at the helm of a most enterprising hospo empire. Paul is with us to talk about the glorious Imperial Hotel, Eumundi Brewery, Eumundi Distillers and their latest accommodation venture, HOLA – the House of Local Art.

There’s a perky, plucky, creative spirit coursing deep through Eumundi. If you are partial to a good market, Eumundi will blow your socks off with its twice-weekly mercantile showstopper. Plus we recommend some great eats in town, at Bungalow and Popina.
