History in Buderim

Looking for a little family "something" to do this weekend? Do you love the outdoors? Do you like doing FREE stuff? Well, look no further.

The Palmwoods to Buderim Tramway is located in scenic Buderim, and is a 2km walk along the historic tram line that was in operation from 1914-1935. That's more than a hundred years ago! The walk is very easy, pram (and possibly) wheelchair friendly. The path is sealed but not paved.

The tramway was built in 1914 to ship goods to Palmwoods where said goods were then transported into Brisbane. Apparently, the roads were too bad to haul goods in trucks.

Getting there: From Brisbane, travel north along the M1 and take exit 194 onto the Sunshine Coast Motorway. Take the Tanawha Forest Glen Drive/Buderim exit. The entrance to the walk is on Mons Road, about 2km out of Buderim.

Palmwoods-Buderim Tramway walk
Lots of tall trees and beautiful scenery
What you will see: Remnants of 100 year old sleepers (always cool). Lots of very tall trees. Birds and wildlife. Grab the brochure at the start of the walk and follow the map to see everything.

Recommendations: Take a picnic lunch. There are a few tables and chairs at the start of the walk, and benches situated along the walk. We took peanut butter and rolls. Don't forget the water. Be mindful that there are steep declines on either side of the path at times. Keep an eye on your little ones. Mozzie spray, sunscreen and hats - as always!
