Things to do in Canungra

Canungra’s Tramway Tunnel

The tunnel was cut through sandstone and used to carry timber from the hills to town. Visitors will gain an insight into the challenge early timber cutters faced bringing their loads down the mountain.


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.


St Lukes Church

St Luke’s Anglican Church was built in 1936 by Mr Gordon Rhoades. The walls are made of rosewood, the floor is rose gum and the furniture is red cedar. The church was dedicated by Archbishop of Brisbane Dr Wand.
A building fund was established in 1917. The Lahey family donated $50 in memory of Noel Alaric Lahey who died in action at Messines during World War 1.
Architect R.C.Nowland’s concept was to incorporate the spirit of Australia within the European gothic style, with the timbers being sourced from the local area.
Weekly church services are held every Sunday at 8am.
Loved by locals and admired by visitors the church has become one of the most photographed buildings in Canungra.
