Buderim Water Falls
Buderim Forest Park and Falls is undoubtedly one of the Sunshine Coast's hidden, natural gems
This picturesque waterfall and the surrounding tranquil rock pools and sub-tropical rainforest are mere minutes away from the beach and the
quaint village of Buderim, yet feel wonderfully secluded.
Buderim Falls, also known as Serenity Falls, is one of those rare
natural treasures that you can experience in as little as 20 minutes. Equally, you could just as easily spend an entire day soaking up
this natural wonderland as you enjoy a picnic with your family or partner.
The waterfall flows year-round but looks particularly spectacular after rainfall, when the water from Martins Creek transforms the falls from
a trickle into a strong cascade of water down the rock face into the shallow waterhole below.
The falls are set in 45 hectares of the Buderim Forest Park, on the northern side of Buderim Mountain, which is home to towering trees, dramatic
strangler figs, ferns and melodious forest birdlife, such as whipbirds and catbirds.
A splendid walking trail has been developed from two entry points. The lower entry is off Lindsay Road via Harry’s Lane, while the second
entry point is via Quorn Close, which runs off Lindsay Road at the top of Buderim. Both entries have their advantages and disadvantages
and there is parking at both entry points, with most at the top Quorn Close entry.
Wandering along the bush pathways that lead to Buderim Falls is a magical experience, and it is worth stopping to listen to the quiet babble
of the creek and call of the native birds.
Visit this tranquil spot and you'll quickly understand why Buderim Falls is a paradise for nature lovers and photographers alike, and has
fast become one of the most Instagrammed places on the Sunshine Coast.
