A joint initiative by Eumundi community organisations and the Sunshine Coast Council, Guymer Bailey Landscape was engaged to redesign the 'terraces' section of the premises to improve safety and the overall market experience. 

Amidst the challenging ground levels and existing trees and services, Guymer Bailey Landscape delivered a solution that was accessible, safe, durable and low maintenance, whilst keeping with the high profile tourist destination.
