Pioneer Cottage Buderim

How did we live 100 years ago? Check it out right here in Buderim!

Step back in time Buderim style at The Pioneer Cottage. This amazing original house (now a museum) is located at 5 Ballinger Cresecent, Buderim and is a living piece of local history.

The home was built using pit-sawn cedar and beech around 1880 by J.K. Burnett, a local and original resident of Buderim.

If the name sounds familiar . . . they are the family whose name was given to the main street through Buderim Village.

The cottage is listed by the National Trust and National Estage Register, is owned by the BWMCA and cared for by the Buderim Historical Society.

Walk through the furnished rooms in period decor and marvel at the displays of Buderim historic memorabilia!

The Pioneer Cottage will give you a first-hand look into Buderim’s colonial farming origins and a must-see for visitors and residents alike.
