This is a 45 hectare secluded oasis, hidden on the northern side of Buderim, less than a kilometre from the Buderim Village. This is a rainforest world of tall trees, ferns, babbling waterfalls, cascades and bird calls.
The area was purchased many years ago by the Council as a reserve for all of Buderim.
Amazingly much of the creek actually belongs to private land owners as once did the waterfall! The falls were a favourite recreational place for the region’s indigenous people and have been unofficially named “Serenity Falls”, but are widely known as the Buderim Falls.

Getting there

Two ways of getting there. One is behind Harry's Restaurant on Harry's Lane just of Lindsay Road, the other from the top of Quorn Close, which is also off Lindsay Road, but farther south. Car parks and picnic area are provided at both ends.

Buderim Forest Park

Route/Trail notes:

From Harry's lane, follow the walkway along the course of Martins Creek. From Quorn Close car park it is medium to steep track down to the waterfall; splendid after a couple days of rain.

Permits/Costs:

None.

Other References/Comments:

Paths and boulders can be very slippery after rain. Always take your swimmers, as you can swim in the refreshing waters of the pool below the waterfall. Gets very busy in summer.

Comments

This walk was so unexpected. A gem tucked away in suburbia.

This is a great little walk with a nice waterfall. It does get quite crowded though.
