COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

It appears that with the movement restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic being relaxed, we plan to re-open Pioneer Cottage on Wednesday 1 July 2020.  The Cottage will only be open from Tuesday to Saturday due to a shortage of volunteer door guides. 

We urgently need more Visitor Guide volunteers to enable Pioneer Cottage to be open to the public for six days a week.  Please contact BHS if you are able to assist.


The Buderim Historical Society is housed at the Pioneer Cottage (built 1882), in Pioneer Crescent (formerly Ballinger Crescent) Buderim and only a 5 minute walk from the Information Centre at the Old Post Office Buderim.

The Society collects and protects the history of Buderim to share with all ages.

Interesting and informative History Talks are conducted on the first Saturday of every third month starting in March.

The Pioneer Cottage provides an excellent venue, as the Buderim History Museum for school groups that are studying local history as part of their curriculum.

Hours: 11:00am-3:00pm Monday – Saturday
Cost: Adults $5 Children $1
