"High Quality of Life in Buderim"

Buderim has long been regarded as the most sought after residential precinct on the Sunshine Coast. Buderim will often feature in international surveys as one of the most liveable places in the world.

With an abundance of natural beauty, a historic charm, and a thriving community, it’s easy to see why so many people love calling Buderim home. Along with the natural assets, Buderim provides a ‘fully rounded’ experience of lifestyle and opportunity for professionals and families alike.

"Tree change /Sea change"

Buderim is perfectly situated for those who love nature, be it by the sea or surrounded by trees.
Buderim was once called "the place you go to before you go to heaven"- but times have changed! Its an awesome family friendly suburb now.

"Beautiful family friendly suburb!"

One year ago my young family and I moved up from Victoria- we have not looked back! A short drive to the beach and city, yet surrounded by palm trees and lush greenery it really is beautiful.

"North Buderim hidden gem, best suburb."

Moved the family to a house we bought in the northern part of Buderim and we wouldn't be happier, such a nice pocket of the world.

Although Buderim has taken off I would say our northern pocket is still a bit of a hidden gem (Jones / Mons School road area) and I'd encourage other young families to check out the area.

Great houses on large blocks, patches of rainforest, established gardens etc the people are lovely.

"A town worth looking at for your kids sake"

Tradition with a blend of history, arts and decent place to bring up a family, too bad the town shuts down at 8;15 every night needs a few more public "view" cafe's maybe on top of woolworths monolith. More bikeways needed around all the new subdivions going in, links to the uni from the west side, look at a complete Buderim loop for a lower Mt easy ride and commuting.

Great for

  • History/ art/ tradition
  • Ocean view, cooling breezes
  • Great lifestyle
  • Great Schooling
  • Convenient

Not great for

  • No bikeways on top or between subdivions
  • A bit snobby
  • Multiple car parking on council strips

"Buderim - The Right Choice For Me!"

When considering a change of career, I didn't have to look far to find exactly what my heart desired. A tranquil environment which offers a relaxed yet inspiring outlook. So close to the amazing beaches of the sunshine coast and walking distance to a coffee shop, the Buderim lifestyle will draw you in. Great for a family, perfect for retirement or even as a holiday escape, you really do live the dream in this magical suburb.

"Buderim is the Sunshine Coast with a beating heart"

Buderim is no longer just for retirees. The new Buderimite is most likely an urban professional for whom the schools are important but the lifestyle is paramount.

You will find these locals any morning in one of the many coffee shops, savouring the start of the day after a walk around the Mountain Top and before they drop the kids off at one of the exceptional schools that dot the foothills of Buderim.

Shopping, restaurants and medical facilities are all here but despite its size Buderim is where everybody stops to say hello and families that have been here only a short time feel like they have lived here forever and can think of no other place to live.

Quiet, peaceful community based lifestyle for all. All the best Lloyd..............

"A Coastal Destination with a Village Atmosphere in the Heart of the Sunshine Coast"

What brings people to Buderim? For me it was the lifestyle, the village atmosphere, the strong community spirit, the convenience of being in the heart of the Sunshine Coast yet only minutes to the array of sun drenched beaches the coast has to offer. Its about my children, the education, the university, the immense opportunities available to them through sport, nippers, music and arts. Buderim is located in what is considered one of the best Private and Public school precincts, from early learning, day care to the university all your children's education requirements are at your doorstep. There is no hustle and bustle here, there is just the sound of mother nature, the crash of waves rolling in and cool sea breezes that gently remind you that you are living in one of the most amazing places on the east coast of Australia...the Sunshine Coast. Welcome to Buderim...its the life you have always dreamed of.

"Buderim Babies"

Grew up on Buderim and lived in about 5 different locations around the mountain - am now 30 and moved away 10 years ago. But, what a fantastic place to 'go home' to. I couldnt wait to spread my wings and go overseas, but now, if I had the perfect choice, I would really love to be able to bring up a family here. Great lifestyle. Great weather. Really great friends who I am still in touch with and we pick up where we left off all those years ago. You can escape the tourist crowds on the beachfront and nip home for a quiet coldie, in blissfull peace. If buying a house around Buderim, check out all the best streets and try to locate around them as this will give you an almost guaranteed return on your investment. Fantastic memories of my time living here and realise now how lucky i was.

What a fantastic description of what is a fantastic suburb to live and work in. Coming up from Brisbane I have embedded myself into the culture of Buderim and am loving it. I could not hope for a more relaxed, family orientated area to work and live in.

"Over rated"

Everyone wants to live in Buderim! I don't know why. Yes, it's a nice place with a good main street with cafe's and shops but HIGHLY over priced as far as housing goes. To buy a 4 bedroomed home that doesn't need masses of work updating it and a fair few dollars in renovation, kiss goodbye to well over $600K. This is ridiculous snob value and there are many towns that offer much better value housing; take the Hinterland for example. People pay Buderim prices because; "it's a Buderim address", the reality is that is ALL what you are paying for with no better location or facilities than any other place on the Sunshine Coast (most of these 'Buderim addresses are actually in Kuluin, Sippy Downs or Mountain Creek anyway truth be told!). My tip? Look elsewhere.

"No longer just for the oldies"

Years ago Buderim had a reputation as a retirement village - this has changed dramatically over the past 25 years. Young professionals and their families seek out the best schools and the best properties. Green and leafy, lots of sporting facilities, horse riding, tennis, fab golf course, 25m swimming pool for lessons at the local college - really a great place to bring up kids. Away from the busy coastal tourists, but just 5-10 mins drive to the beach, depending on which side of the mountain you live on. The green and pleasant land - yep, this is it! Affordable housing from around $350k to a couple of million dollars. There are some really key street addresses that attract premium prices, so it always good to check out where these are and try to locate around them for maximum returns on property.

"Great weekend hideaway or escape to live!"

Buderim is west of Mooloolaba and only 15-20 minutes drive to shopping and beaches. Definately more suited to retirees looking to unwind kick back and soak in the views from the mountain top. Although can be a perfect escape for you and your partner away from the kids!

Buderim is situated on top of Buderim Mountain and offers great views of the Sunshine Coast.

"A lovely town in the hills just behind the Sunshine Coast beaches."

Buderim is a lovely place to live. It is set among the hills behind the Sunshine Coast and is only 15 mins drive to the main shopping centres. Excellent cuisine is available in town and there are upmarket shops to cater for all needs.

It is more a spread out residential area with quality homes, units and a little acreage on the western side. There are also a number of older homes where retirees live or which are let for rental. Overall it is an excellent place to bring up a family. Buderim is an area that was established many years ago and was an area where a lot of rural people had coastal homes because the blocks were much larger than the blocks down on the coast and this tended to suit their needs.

There are several excellent schools in the area and the Sunshine Coast University is only 5 mins drive away.

Buderim has a lush semi tropical growth with lots of beautiful flowering trees and also lots of native birds which are often fed by the locals.

Overall it is quite a stunning place to live.
