Buderim, perched atop a volcanic plateau in Queensland’s hinterland region, is only minutes from a string of popular surf beaches that line the Sunshine Coast. Originally a rural community, Buderim has family homes of all shapes, sizes and eras built on quiet, meandering streets lined with poinciana trees and flowering shrubs. The lush bushlands of Buderim Falls and Foote Reserve are home to an abundance of wildlife. Locals can enjoy the walking trails and picnic facilities while taking in views to the coastline in one direction and expansive rural landscapes to the other.
Head to Burnett and Main Streets and you will find a village with a profusion of cafés, galleries and boutique stores. And Buderim’s love affair with alfresco dining is paired with multicultural cuisines – there are a number of restaurants that keep locals local and visitors coming back for more.
Buderim has become a thriving cultural centre, with a burgeoning art scene that draws its inspiration from the idyllic natural surroundings. Once a popular stomping ground for retirees, the area has become a thriving community of established families who make the most of the quality schools and the 10-minute drive to world-class beaches. A hinterland hideaway, Buderim offers a lifestyle that is hard to beat.
