At the 2006 census, Murdunna had a population of 321.Population increases in the summer months, and it is becoming increasingly popular with people from Hobart who are looking for weekend getaways. Many houses are owned by non-residents who use them as holiday homes. The name Murdunna is believed to come from a local indigenous word meaning "place of the stars".
Tourism is a major source of income, although forestry was and still continues to be a major employer. Many inhabitants commute to Hobart on a daily basis with improved roads.
Recreation is centered on Sommers Bay, about 5 km (3.1 mi) west of Murdunna itself.
