Jump to: Map | Need to Know

Buderim is steeped in history, the Kabi Kabi people being the area’s original inhabitants. The name Buderim derives from the Aboriginal word badderam for the Hairpin Honeysuckle, a type of Banksia which grew on the lower slopes of Buderim. The first official record of Buderim was made in 1862 by Tom Petrie, when he explored the area to investigate its timber resources.

Start at the Pioneer Cottage to hear stories about historic Buderim. You will learn about the Old Post Office, ginger factories and businesses that made the town what it is today. After the talk, take a self-guided walk to nearby landmarks.



Booking required for talk, followed by self-guided walking tour.
