Eumundi Voice is a free fortnightly 32-36 page colour magazine with 5,000 copies published and delivered to letterboxes and community distribution points across Eumundi and surrounds.

After production costs, 100% of funds raised from advertising in Eumundi Voice are given back as donations to individuals and not-for-profit groups within our community to support worthwhile projects and activities.

The magazine acts as “the voice of Eumundi and surrounds” and is a true community publication offering local news, what’s on, recent events, new in town, Councillors and Police reports, Eumundi Rotary Club updates, environment, youth, sport, heritage, travel and the list goes on.

There is something for every reader and we thank our contributors and advertisers for their continuing support.

A dedicated team of volunteers deliver the magazine every second Thursday in Eumundi, Kenilworth, Belli Park, Eerwah Vale, North Arm, Cooroy, Yandina, Verrierdale, Doonan, Pomona, Kin Kin and Noosa.

On 5 June 2024, the Lowy Institute released its annual survey of how Australians see the world, based on the views of over 2000 randomly selected participants. Now in its 20th year, the poll shows how attitudes have changed over time on a number of issues, including threats facing Australia, the risk of conflict in the region, the economy, immigration, global warming and democracy itself.
The Lowy Institute was founded by Sir Frank Lowy in 2003 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of his arrival in Australia from war-torn Europe. Always a keen student of history and international affairs, he wanted to deepen the Australian debate about the world. Today the Lowy Institute is Australia’s leading foreign policy think tank.

The much-loved Cherry Ripe turns 100 in 2024, making it Australia’s oldest chocolate bar. The distinctive bar is a combination of ripe, juicy cherries and moist coconut all covered in rich Old Gold dark chocolate. Yummm!
The Cherry Ripe was manufactured by Australian confectioner MacRobertson’s until 1967 when it was acquired by British company Cadbury. The move gave Cadbury a major manufacturing base at Ringwood, Victoria and a range of unique brands, including not only the Cherry Ripe but another household favourite, the Freddo Frog. Cadbury planted a cherry tree at the factory in honour of the popular Cherry Ripe. While the original factory no longer stands, that cherry tree still exists, now in a courtyard of converted apartments.
The Cherry Ripe’s recipe and distinctive wrapper remained unchanged over the years, and it continued to be co-branded with Cadbury until 2002 when it finally adopted the Cadbury Master brand. Cadbury is now owned by American company Mondelez International.
Roy Morgan research in the 12 months to March 2013 found the Cherry Ripe was Australia’s favourite chocolate bar, followed closely by Cadbury’s Dairy Milk blocks and then Mars Bars. Those aged over 35 showed a clear preference for Cherry Ripe and those under 35 more likely to consume other chocolate bars. Today, around 40 million Cherry Ripes are produced annually.

Amy Gibson has a passion for flowers and colour – especially orchids. At the recent Mother’s Day Show of the Noosa District Orchid & Foliage Society in Cooroy, Amy was thrilled to win two 1st prizes, two 2nd prizes and three 3rd prizes, along with taking out the Grand Champion Foliage.
The smile on Amy’s face when she talks about her plants is infectious. “My plants help me de-stress from work, and I just love working with all of them,” said Amy.
Amy sometimes takes a flowering orchid to work to show the residents at Kabara Aged Care in Cooroy. She loves seeing their faces light up at the variety of colours and shapes of orchids. She has lost count of how many plants she has but says it’s definitely over 500. Amy said, “I find it so hard to sell any of them to make room for more.”
Amy and her husband came to Tewantin 9 years ago from Broome without a single orchid or plant. She grew up with plants and soon started collecting. Amy said her husband is very supportive. “He built several pergolas with shelving and a 12.5m greenhouse for my plants, but he is not a gardener himself,” said Amy. She does the growing and caring of the plants, moving them lovingly around the garden over different seasons to ensure balance in the plants’ growth.
For those wanting to know more about plants – not just orchids – Amy recommends using apps such as World Flora or Pl@ntNet.
