Find the best of Buderim
Dine and delight in these top three spots
BUDERIM is an absolute gem of a Sunshine Coast destination, with cafe and boutique-lined streets, uninterrupted views to the ocean and unique natural features to explore.
We’ve listed three top spots to visit where you can also grab a bit to eat (or drink) and stay awhile.
Buderim Forest Park (off Lindsay Rd)
Known as Buderim Falls or Serenity Falls, this rainforest board walk and waterfall will have you in hinterland heaven just minutes from our famous beaches. The council-owned nature reserve has both circuit tracks (20 minutes return or one-hour options) or a one-way 30-minute walk taking you through towering palm trees, creek crossings and an Insta-famous waterfall. Start from the board walk entrance off Lindsay Rd or via Quorn Cl featuring a memorial garden.
EAT: At the lower entrance to the park you’ll find huge grassy lawns and barbecue facilities perfect for a family picnic. There’s also fine dining options, with Harry’s on Buderim restaurant set in a 120-year-old homestead.
Buderim Lions Park (111 Burnett St)
This park has sweeping views back to the coast, just minutes from the heart of town. The park has recently been revamped to include a great kids’ playground, toilets, picnic benches and barbecue area.
EAT: Head across the road to Birds and the Beans Espresso – it’s in the iconic Vandy’s Garage, with original gas pumps still out the front.
Wirreanda Park (cnr King and Short Sts)
This is one stunning spot to visit. Originally the grand entrance way to pioneering family the Lindsays, Wirreanda Park is now an avenue of arched weeping fig trees. It also includes a playground and amenities including toilets, barbecues and picnic tables.
EAT: Opposite the park you’ll find what is often touted as the best pie on the Sunshine Coast (including gluten-free).
PICTURE PERFECT: Buderim Forest Park is in the heart of Buderim and it is only a few minutes’ walk to Serenity Falls.
