Kunda Park is an industrial suburb of Buderim in the Sunshine Coast Region, Queensland, Australia.[2] In the 2016 census, Kunda Park had a population of 27 people.[1]

Geography

The northern boundary of Kunda Park follows Eudlo Creek, a tributary of the South Maroochy River. In the northwest Eudlo Creek Conservation Park preserves a large section of uncleared land along Eudlo Creek. There is a small area of grazing land near the conservation park. Apart from that, the suburb is industrial.[3]

History

The area was formerly known locally as Crete. The township of Kunda Park was named by the Queensland Place Names Board on 1 May 1975. The name Kunda is believed to be the Kabi language word gunda or konda, meaning cabbage tree palm.[2]

In the 2016 census, Kunda Park had a population of 27 people.[1]
