About us

WE GIVE 100% BACK TO THE COMMUNITY

After magazine 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.

EUMUNDI VOICE IS A FREE FORTNIGHTLY
32-36 PAGE MAGAZINE, CIRCULATION 5,000

Delivered fortnightly on Thursday by dedicated volunteers to letterboxes and community distribution points across Eumundi, Kenilworth, Belli Park, Eerwah Vale, North Arm, Cooroy, Pomona, Kin Kin, Yandina, Verrierdale, Doonan and Noosa.

Behind those faces you may see at the mailbox are several other teams including volunteer news gatherers, writers and proofreaders, advertising promoters, accounts and administration who give their time to support Eumundi Voice.

Our Editor and Graphic designer are professional contractors with extensive experience in magazines who donate part of their time towards its successful fortnightly publication.

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 since our August 2020 launch.

Meet a local – Rosanna Natoli
The word 'mayor' comes from the French word ‘maire’ – meaning ‘greatest’ or ‘superior’– and is applied to the head man of a village, town or city community.
It came to England with the Norman Conquest in 1066. Following British tradition, Australian mayors are elected through popular ballot at local government elections or a vote amongst councillors. Large cities may elect a Lord Mayor with Royal approval.
Former journalist and TV presenter Rosanna Natoli was recently elected Mayor of Sunshine Coast Council. Rosanna’s Italian parents farmed sugar cane in Bundaberg. Educated in Brisbane, she gained a science degree but realised her interest in current affairs and helping people was better served through journalism.
While waitressing at a lavish wedding at The Sheraton, a guest was impressed by her pronunciation of “prosciutto” and insisted she meet his son Joe who she married in 1989, spending time overseas before moving to the Sunshine Coast.
They ran a restaurant called Tivoli in Caloundra before Joe became a councillor and was Sunshine Coast Mayor for four years. Rosanna did work experience with Sunshine TV, filling in as a ‘temp’ and eventually working full time, travelling to Bundaberg then Maryborough each week and returning home on weekends. The opening of a station in Maroochydore meant a more stable home life and she welcomed two daughters, Ruby and Mia, and a son Roman.
As a popular newsreader on Channel 7, Rosanna is familiar to many people. She is heavily involved in the community and an avid supporter of numerous organisations and charities. In her role as Mayor she can give a voice to those not being heard, especially in hinterland communities. “It’s a natural progression from the many connections I already have and will bring me new relationships.”
“The Sunshine Coast has grown so quickly with more people coming. At present we haven’t got sufficient infrastructure, especially in transport and roads. We must ensure our lifestyle is maintained.”
Rosanna is committed to being open and available. She walks every morning near a beach on weekends, is passionate about the arts, loves singing and theatre, enjoys coffee time with friends and promises she will be visible.
Although the budget is already made, Rosanna wants to ensure that changes to the basics are relevant improvements and visible to the public. Her husband Joe was re-elected as a Division 4 Councillor.

Watch this space…..I have had a lot of questions about works on the Eumundi Noosa Road at the bridge over the North Maroochy River.
It is geotechnical drilling and investigations to finalise the design and engineering for the bridge.

Domestic and Family Violence (DFV) is increasing in our community, with fear and physical assaults stemming from control, dominance and anger issues. The figures for two years (2022-2023) show DFV incidents totalled 1,474 in Noosa, 426 in Eumundi and 331 in Cooroy.

Five Rotary clubs – Noosa Rotary, Rotary Club of Cooroy Queensland, Rotary Noosa Daybreak, Noosa Heads and Eumundi Rotary Club – have joined together to broaden understanding of the impact of DFV and stimulate community action. More than 80 people attended a seminar at Cooroy Memorial Hall on 18 April and heard from police members A/SenSgt Ryan Hanlon, A/Sgt Craig McKenzie and Sgt Marie O’Brien about the prevalence of DFV and its impact.
A/Sgt McKenzie explained the complexity of ‘relevant relationships’ and the terms ‘respondent’ and ‘aggrieved’. He outlined the range of abuse that can be addressed under law including emotional, financial and physical threats, and direct violence.

Sgt O’Brien outlined the Vulnerable Persons Unit's work and focus on prevention. One in six women report DFV from a cohabiting partner and it’s estimated that 80% of events are not reported. She described how police utilise the skills of community agencies such as Centacare, DVConnect Mensline and Queensland Health to help victims caught up in a repetitive cycle and hold perpetrators accountable as “no one organisation can cope with the scale of DFV”.

During question time, the personal stories of some who have experienced DFV brought home the immediacy and magnitude of the problem. Rotary for Mental Health (R4MH) groups continue to increase awareness and action by the whole community with more events planned.
