Bodes Artists Hut

Visit Bode’s Hut in DJ Smith Park.

Edwin Bode was a local artist born in Birmingham, England in 1859.

He came to Australia arriving in Queensland in 1882 where he purchased 160 acres on the Coomera River and built a modest house “Maybury.” Bode moved to Canungra in 1886 where he lived in a small hut opposite the cemetery. He travelled throughout the hinterland, working on properties in the Canungra, Wonglepong and Mt Tamborine regions, painting exquisitely detailed watercolours of homesteads and farms.

DJ Smith Memorial Park

A beautifully maintained park in the heart of Canungra.

There is a new playground which includes all-abilities equipment such as new swings suitable for children with mobility issues, making a safer, more inclusive park for everyone. The play structures were designed to be in keeping with the rural feel of the town.

Public toilets are situated in this park.
