Discover the Heritage Buderim Tramway Walk 

There once was a train track which ran from Palmwoods to Buderim Central. You can read more about this on the Tramway History page. The original rails and sleepers were removed but a wonderful walk has been developed along a section of the original right-of-way owned by Council.  The walk starts from the corner of Mons Road and Telco Road in Buderim.

The development of the walking track is a project of the Buderim-Palmwoods Heritage Tramway Inc and is supported by the Sunshine Coast Regional Council.

The existing Council easement is 2000m (4000m return) and is a wonderful stroll through the regrowth forest.

 There are points of interest along the way and an information brochure is available at the Information Shelter at the base of the access ramp, or from the Old Post Office and other tourist sites around Buderim.

This walk was a new one for the club and for many its existence was a revelation. A good number of people came out for an enjoyable walk under a beautiful sky and we cobbled together a list of recorded species just over the half tonne - although many of these were heard only.
