Buderim is located 95 km north of Brisbane and is considered one of the most charming Sunshine Coast towns. One of the reasons it’s so much loved is its friendly weather and expansive character. 

Often called Badderam or Budderum by the locals, Buderim also has a lot to offer when it comes to things to do. Check out these excellent spots and activities: 


Our favorite outdoor activities.

If you are looking to explore the outdoors this weekend, then Buderim is the place to be. You can visit the Buderim Village Park, which is a favorite spot for families and couples for picnics and outdoor BBQ. 

For those who want to immerse themselves fully in the outdoors, you can also opt to explore the Buderim Forest, Waterfall Park. It has all the natural trees, birds, and even the babbling waterfalls. The walking time here is 20 minutes, but the walking track from the other side’s entrance is 30 minutes. 

In here, you can walk through the Palms forests, and there’s also a creek crossing, Martin Creek, and a viewing area. The Serenity Falls is also located within the park. 


More outdoor activities.

Just outside Buderim is another beautiful spot, which is the Bellingham Maze. It’s a labyrinth that’s definitely worth getting lost into. A few meters away from the maze is a mini-golf area, a Harry Potter quiz, and a tea house. There are also special occasions when the maze is open at night, and you can bring your own drinks. 

Another worthy stop is the Maroochy Bushland Sculpture Garden, which is also a great option if you’re not into hiking the woods. It’s a garden mixed with manmade and natural wonders – a perfect place for picnics!


Don’t forget the beach!

It’s not a secret that many people are looking for land for sale nearby Buderim, and one of their reasons is that it has some of the best beaches in Australia. Our favorites include the Mooloolaba, Kawana, Bulckok, and Maroochydore beach. 

The Mooloolaba beach is a favorite holiday destination not just because of the pristine beach, but also because of the award-winning restaurants in the area. So, if you like an awesome gastronomical experience with the best beach view, then this is the place for you. 

For those looking to fish and surf with perfect waves, Kawana Beach is the best option. If you are looking to surf and let your family or friends relax in the spa, then Maroochydore Beach is the palace to be. 


Drop by the theme park.

Of course, your visit to Buderim won’t be complete if you won’t visit Aussie World Theme Park! It’s one of the best theme parks for both kids and adults. If you want to enjoy the park, it’s highly recommended that you spend three hours here. 

Another spot that’s also awesome for kids is the SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast Aquarium. Inside, you can enjoy their ocean tunnel, seal island experience, the coastal wreck adventure, tidal touch pool, and see the little blue penguins.

Buderim has a lot to offer, especially when it comes to experience and adventure. So don’t hesitate to enjoy your weekend here!
