A Scenic Retreat

Nestled atop a volcanic plateau, Buderim offers breathtaking views and a lush, green environment that sets it apart from other Sunshine Coast suburbs.

This natural beauty is a defining feature of the suburb, with a mix of rainforest, waterfalls, and beautiful parks making it a haven for nature lovers.

Buderim’s history is as rich as its soil. Originally inhabited by the Kabi Kabi people, the area became a significant site for timber and agriculture during European settlement in the 19th century.
