A Sunshine Coast hinterland town is sporting a leafy new look after an upgrade to its main street.

Eudlo’s main thoroughfare, Rosebed Street, has undergone a vibrant makeover, after work started on it earlier this year.

The town was settled in 1880s and the name of the town is of First Nations origin and means “fresh water eel”.  

Sunshine Coast Council Division 5 Councillor Winston Johnston said the upgrade enhanced the day-to-day experience of locals, visitors and businesses.

“Works started in January on making the town’s streets safer for pedestrians and road users by keeping our youngest residents safe when journeying to school,” he said.

“The pedestrian crossing on Rosebed Street and Corlis Avenue has been upgraded and I think the community will enjoy the upgrades providing an appealing walkable environment.

“The improvements focused on giving the town a green injection to cool and beautify the urban environment.

“Some of the carparks have been realigned in the centre of Rosebed Street to make way for three garden beds boasting three large shade trees and more than 700 smaller shrubs and ground covers.

“In addition, council will also be adding new solar lights, to the three new centre garden beds on Rosebed Street, which will provide for a welcoming entrance during the evenings.

“These beneficial changes go a long way to delivering social, economic and sustainable benefits for Eudlo.”

The upgrade was part of an extensive streetscape engagement process from November.

Council asked the community to share what they loved and what could be improved to enhance Rosebed Street, to develop a draft streetscape concept plan.

Locals, visitors and businesses worked with the Placemaking and Design team, attended a series of community events and completed online surveys, to create a space everyone can enjoy.

Further feedback was sought on the final concept plan in July, which was refined to develop the community’s values and vision and enhance the town’s unique characteristics.
