Buderim Things to Do

  • Morning Tea or Lunch on Buderim

    Well you have a choice to make and what a choice. But everything keeps changing...heaps of coffee shops....real estate agents...and hairdressers (most of the latter closed Mondays)I really like Chopping Block situated about in the centre of town. They cook with butter not horrible margarine. They have baby quiche and a vegetarian wrap (beautiful...

  • Visit Nambour R S L

    Nambor RSL is only 20 minutes drive by car from Buderim so it is a good place to go for a night out.There are three RSLs close to Buderim...Nambour, Maroochydore, and Caloundra but we like Nambour the best.There is dancing and music most night, but there are poker machines every night! I enjoyed the main Restaurant meal and we have another meal...

Buderim Nightlife

    by wise23girl Written Jul 10, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well as you drive up Main Street at night you will see folk dining" al fresco". A few will be window shopping while others make their way to Buderim Tavern.

    Sometimes music but always food and poker(slot) machines await you at Buderim Tavern. There is a TAB if you fancy a bet on the horses. It may be wise to book for the restaurant.

    What does await you is a magnificent view out towards Caloundra especially if you arrive before night falls.

    But back to the main street. There is a fish and chip shop if you fancy a take-a-way. Just around the corner is Thai Frenzy which has a good reputation.

    Of course night life includes those nice restaurants I mention in other tips.

    Overall a quiet night.

    Dress Code: Just tidy gear

Buderim What to Pack

  • wise23girl's Profile Photo

    by wise23girl Updated Jul 12, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Bring a back back to do the walks. . A money purse so you can spend. A carry bag for your shopping.
    Leave the heavy stuff down at the beach as no doubt that is where you are "camped"

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: It can be a bit chilly and windy in winter. Like right now (July). We can have heavy rain so a raincoat is handy. But in summer it can be hot.
    Bring your walking shoes to venture into the rainforest..we do have snakes. and scrub ticks.
    Always a hat.
    A tennis raquet if you fancy a game.
    A swim suit for the heated pool
    And for dinner at night in Le Baroque something special to wear.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: A bit of mosquito repellent for rainforest walks. Always creme for your face especially if you are from countries like UK. Our climate is harsh.

    Photo Equipment: You will want to take photos on the nature walks and if you are here on 26th January you will be keen to have memories of the Australia Day parade.
    There are distance views in all directions ...just need to ask a local where to go for the best shot.

    Miscellaneous: Nearly everything you could want is available on Buderim so if you forget it do not worry. All within walking distance too.But at this point in time no camera shop (2009)
