The Old Buderim Post Office was purchased from Telstra by the BWMCA as a Community Information Centre in 1998. This was a project that involved the whole community with more than half the money raised by donations & fund-raising by local businesses, community groups & residents.
The building was renovated & restored to better than new by a dedicated team of volunteers & now serves as the Community Information Centre in the heart of Buderim.
The Buderim Old Post Office Community Information Centre is open 6 days a week, Mon-Fri from 10am to 4pm, & Sat 10am to 12.30pm.
Staffed by a team of volunteers – friendly, local people who know Buderim well so they are happy to assist visitors with tourist information, directions to a particular street or help new residents to the Village settle in & find their way around.
At Buderim’s Info Centre, the Buderim Community Association regularly holds a “Welcome to Buderim” Morning or Afternoon Tea, especially to greet new residents, answer your queries, help you make new friends & really settle in! So if you’re new to Buderim, contact Robyn Lee on (07) 5476 7212 & RSVP to the next Morning Tea. You’re welcome!
Paradoxically, the Old Buderim Post Office is unable to sell stamps! The official Post Office is a short stroll away at Buderim Central. Thankfully, The Old Post Office does sell Buderim postcards & a variety of local publications, the piece de resistance being “The Flavours of Buderim” cookbooks, full of mouth-watering recipes by Buderim people. These books have shot to the top of the best seller list in Buderim & can now be found in kitchens all over the world!
Call in or phone 5477 0944. By the way, Buderim’s postcode is 4556.
