Buderim is placed on and around a volcanic plateau, barely 600 feet above the Pacific
Ocean. There is a green ambience characterised by leafy streets lined with poinciana trees. Major features are the Buderim Forest Waterfall Walk, Buderim Falls (also known as Serenity Falls) and Foote Sanctuary.
With a plethora of coffee shops, the centre of Buderim is central to whole of the Sunshine Coast, little more than 10 minutes from the famous beaches of Maroochydore, Alexandra Headland and Mooloolaba.
If you fancy pub fare with a view then you can’t go past a meal at Buderim Tavern or for fine dining, Harry's on Buderim offers contemporary Australian cuisine to be enjoyed in the setting of a 140-year-old, heritage style homestead on the edge of Buderim Forest Park.
The Green House (Beulah Community) supports the history of Australian First People and also
organises land care and re-vegetation projects while Biral Tours offer cultural and spiritual Bush Walkout Tours on the tribal lands and sacred waterways of the Undumbi and Giggabara language groups of the Kabi Kabi tribal nation.
Neighbouring areas Tanawha and Forest Glen boast attractions, natural spaces and tasty brews at the reimagined Bellingham Maze, majestic Maroochy Bushland Botanic Gardens and Glasshouse Brewery.
