We absolutely loved Buderim Forest Park. Easy find and a free activity for all members of the family. There is plenty of parking, toilets, a bbq area and bins which is excellent. The majority of the forest is a wooden trail wide enough for prams...More

Enjoyed a short 20min round trip walk to falls. Loved the boardwalk through the forest, babbling stream and then a little scramble over roots and balancing on rocks. Enough to make it interesting. Very peaceful

20 min walk to Falls from the top car park. Easy walking path and not too slippery given the recent rain.

Buderim has a rather easy walk (although it is up hill the whole way from the waterfall back to the car park) to the waterfall. The waterfall is lovely, but after the rain it gets that brown water colour from the mud. So best to...More

Quite a bit of parking at the bottom end of the park (near Harry's Hut restaurant). Less at the top end (above the waterfall). Definitely better to park at the bottom I suggest.
