Buderim is an urban centre on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland Australia. It sits on a 180 metre (590ft) mountain which overlooks the southern Sunshine Coast communities, 91km north of Brisbane.
Once known for the fine timber that was cut from the land; such as Beech and Australian Red Cedar which grew across the mountain. The mountain was clear felled, making a textbook plateau which was used for farming. Suited to growing almost everything from bananas to small crops, the rich red volcanic soil was the perfect playing field. The most famous crops were coffee and ginger. Buderim housed the largest ginger processing facility in the southern hemisphere in the middle of the 20th century, which operated as the Buderim Ginger Factory until 1980 when operations were moved to a new facility near Yandina.
Home to Foote Sanctuary and Buderim Falls, both of which have well-maintained public walking paths; a great place to walk whilst spotting native wildlife including king parrots, lorikeets, brush turkeys and kangaroos.
The Mountain is notable for an enormous variety of architectural style homes, from classic “Queenslander” to ultra-modern one-off designs. With a stunning view of the Coast, which ensures the price tag lives up to expectations.
The area is exceptionally well-served for both state and private schools. For the little ones Buderim Mountain State School caters for Prep to Year 6. Only a short drive down the hill to the University of the Sunshine Coast.
