This is Buderim Mountain
Spread across the top of the volcanic plateau and down the escarpment, the famous town on Buderim Mountain has recently celebrated 150 years of community spirit, since settlement in 1862. Buderim is in fact, the oldest established European settlement on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.
Despite being only 590 feet (180m) above sea level at the highest point and technically under the official height of a mountain, the plateau has been known as Buderim Mountain from the early days. The Public School carries the full title in its name. Anyone who spends time here will see that Buderim is something special, from the busy CBD (known locally as Buderim Village), to the secret green forest getaways which grace the slopes . . . it is not hard to see why so many people fall in love with this place!
What sets this regional centre apart, is the thriving sense of community, driven to a large extent by the Buderim War Memorial Community Association (BWMCA).
At one stage Buderim was in Queensland’s top four “sea-change” destinations, with urban developments latching onto the name in areas never traditionally considered. To add to the confusion, the local electoral boundaries were reconfigured and the area is also known under the same name, yet it covers an area from the Sunshine Motorway to Rosemount!

There is something different about our town, something which affects visitors and makes them want to be residents. Perhaps it is the tree-lined Buderim Village, the splendid views afforded to many blocks of land on the escarpment, maybe the cooler mountain air . . .
Certainly there is a cultural heritage which comes with being the oldest town on the Sunshine Coast . . . That is a heritage of community.
Here in Buderim we consider ourselves different to ordinary suburbs, not in an elitist way, but more in a caring way. This is demonstrated by remarkable commitment of our unique Community Association (BWMCA), driven by volunteers . . . . the heart-felt work of the Crosby family and Team Adem, the focussed enthusiasm of the Buderim Palmwoods Historic Tramway group and many more. One thing for sure, if you join the Buderim community, it will be great if you were involved in a community organisation, because you will set the direction for the future by whatever actions you take.

So, who are the webmasters?
While others wax ad nauseam with “first site” claims, this is the site with a demonstrated commitment to real value for Buderim first, for well over ten years . . . a site where you can make a fair dinkum connection to our community! This website and associated Buderim Directory sites are owned and operated by a Buderim family. Our roots go back to the 1980’s, visiting our retired parents who discovered this special place before the internet was a “thing.” We moved here, choosing to be very active in our local community organisations and cannot get enough of the place or the people. You are invited to make the most of this true Buderim web site, to help gain an understanding of the special nature of our home. You can buy advertising space on the site and take advantage of the thousands of visitors each month. But the site is a labour of love and we need real jobs to pay the bills!
