Buderim  Queensland

Perched high on the red, fertile soil of Buderim Mountain above the Sunshine Coast, Buderim might be small, but no town or city in the state can match it for vibrant colour. The colour flows from the bougainvillea, poinciana, frangipani and hibiscus, which adorn just about every garden in town.

Although the area’s prosperity has been built on timber, sugar, citrus, coffee and bananas, the name of modern Buderim is synonymous with ginger, which is marketed directly in every conceivable form through the Old Ginger Factory.

You can taste the fruits of the good earth at the markets in the Old Ginger Factory, at the Super Bee honey factory and at the Moonshine Valley Winery, where you can sample wines made from locally grown sub-tropical fruit.

The link to the timber-getting past is preserved in the faithfully restored cottage built from hewn cedar and beech by pioneer John Kerle Bennett in 1876.

The hinterland in which Buderim is set is sprinkled with a number of parks and reserves, which give the visitor a glimpse of the original vegetation in the area. The parkland within the area includes Mooloolah River National Park, where the wallum heathland bursts into a riot of colour in spring, Buderim Forest Park, with its signature waterfalls and boardwalk, and the beautiful Foote Sanctuary.

No matter whether you decide to go surfing on any of the Sunshine Coast beaches, shopping in Noosa, rainforest or waterfall gazing in a chain of national or conservation parks, or browsing in the arts and crafts galleries of Maleny, they’re all within an hour’s drive of Buderim.
