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.
