Australia Day on Buderim
Australia Day is a great event, when the Buderim Aussie Spirit shines!
Activities vary from year to year, but you can guarantee you’ll have a great Aussie time!
The Australia Day celebrations in Buderim pull in crowds from across the Sunshine Coast! The Grand Parade is the highlight attraction, where local clubs and organisations (including the Buderim Web Team) walk and ride in floats down Burnett Street from Woolworths to the roundabout.
The whole day is run by volunteers from the BWMCA, a living memorial to Australian Service men and women, to keep the traditional values of community alive and well here in Buderim!
Here’s a run through of the Australia Day Buderim celebrations for 2016:
