Buderim Dog Friendly Parks & Beaches

Holly loves Buderim's Dog-Friendly Parks & Beaches!

Holly’s Favourite Local Hangouts
around Buderim

My favourite dog-friendly park where I can be free & be me, run, play, chase the ball, walk along, socialise & meet other dogs like myself,  is The Buderim Dog Park on Syd Lingard Drive, off Buderim Moloolaba Rd, Buderim. There’s plenty of room, I get to catch up with my mates & the humans are pretty friendly, usually stopping to give me a pat or have a chat with my parents.
The drive down & back is really good too!

I also like visiting Mudjimba Beach at North Shore, as well as the Sippy Downs Dog Park & of course Maroochydore Riverside Dog Park on Bradman Ave, Cnr Fisherman’s Rd Kuluin. But best of all, I love to go for a walk through Buderim Village. I get THE MOST pats in Burnett Street! The shop owners even put water bowls out the front for me! How thoughtful. Thanks you guys! I still can’t figure out how they knew I was coming up to Buderim for a walk AND that I’d get thirsty...


There’s heaps more on the Sunshine Coast!

(PSSST: While Mum was out I got on the laptop & whipped up a very cool Dog Friendly PDF Guide plus a Google Map of ALL the doggy hot spots on the Sunshine Coast for you...I check my emails whenever she makes a cup of tea – which is quite often – so email me & I’ll send your Dog Friendly Guide & Map as soon as I can by email!
...woofs & kisses, Holly)

Holly our little precious girl - Rest in Peace
Holly...A Tribute to the little Wonderdog
Our Co-Editor & Buderim Village Mascot
for 13 Years...We Miss You Every Day

Sadly, our adorable little girl Holly, the mascot of left this world peacefully on 23 Jan 2013. Holly has been part of her entire life - from its inception, through its creation & beside us, on our lap or at our feet as we have updated, added, maintained & attended to this website every week, week in, week out for over 13 years. If you live in Buderim or nearby, you may have met Holly sometime during the last 13 years.

Her favourite time of day was on her daily walk through the streets of Buderim. She loved to walk in our local neighbourhood, or take a wander along Burnett St wagging her tail, or wading through the leaves at Wirreanda Park, Mill Rd, Monks Lane, Cogill Rd, Gilbert St, Tulip Lane, Lindsay Rd, Castle Reigh Drive, Martins Creek & Pine Street, Cottman St & Townsend Rd, Besley St, Tindale Ave, Gloucester Rd, North Buderim Lake, Sippy Downs, Fishermans Rd Dog Park, Mooloolaba Esplanade & out along Mooloolaba Spit, Cotton Tree Park, Peregian Beach...she loved it all. She adored going for drives in the car, hanging out the window with the wind in her ears & nose to the breeze was her greatest pleasure. And Schmackos...she loved a treat!

We fell in love with Holly the minute we saw her & rescued the little black & white bundle of joy from the Noosa Pound when she was 10 months old. She was the most amazingly active, clever little Chihuahua/Fox Terrier who knew exactly what she wanted & how to communicate that to you in so many little ways. It was a pleasure & a privilege to share our lives with this little treasure - to look after & care for her - as she did for us.

It has been an incredible journey & our hearts are aching & our home is so empty today without Holly’s presence. We miss her dearly but we were so blessed to have her in our lives. She was a funny, inquisitive, super-intelligent, assertive, life-loving little rascal, who loved meeting people - young & old, getting lots of pats & chatting with other dogs. She is simply irreplaceable.

Rest in Peace our darling little Holly Dog - thanks for everything were SIMPLY AWESOME.
...Tracey & Brent

A big thankyou to the local vets that have attended to Holly during her lifetime. Geeta, Leisa & Gary & especially the staff at Chancellor Park Vet Surgery for helping Holly leave the world so peacefully
& Pet Rest Cremations for taking care of her last journey across the Rainbow Bridge...

Temporary Dog Boarders needed!

Seeing Eye Dogs Australia urgently needs Temporary Carers in your area to board teenage puppies who are ready to graduate.

Can they move in with you for their final six months of training?  We’ll collect them for school and drop them home after class.  Your after school caring will someday help give an Australian who is blind independence for life.

Seeing Eye Dogs Australia are seeking Temporary Boarders for their special dogs who are about to commence their final six months of intensive training to qualify as a Seeing Eye Dog.

We provide you with all the necessities like food, bed, registration, leads and toys and all we ask is that you house and love this ‘super hero’ of the future.  Our trainers will collect your new family friend Monday through Friday for training.  Of course, we will fit in with your schedule.

These very special animals have been cared for, for the first 12 months of their life, by our volunteer Puppy Carers who have, under the watchful eye of our training staff, taught these dogs obedience and socialised them to the community.  So you see, your new family friend comes partly trained and ready for the final stage before qualifying.

It’s hard work, which is why they need loving homes to relax in on weeknights & weekends.

So if you are retired, work from home or have a young family and feel you could help us, we’d love to hear from you

To find out more, please call
1300 84 74 66
and ask for the Queensland instructor.

Facts about
Temporary Caring

Carers board year-old puppies that are starting their final six months of intensive training to qualify as Seeing Eye Dogs.

These well-behaved puppies have lived with Puppy Carers since they were eight weeks old, so they know basic obedience commands and have been well socialised.

Your puppy is picked up each morning for training and returned to your home later in the afternoon. They train on weekdays and can relax with you on weekends.

All costs associated with caring for a puppy are covered, which means you don’t have to pay for its food, bowl, bed, toys, registration, collar, lead and vet costs.

We welcome Temporary carers from all backgrounds and households, including those with other pets and young children.

If you would like to apply to become a volunteer Temporary Carer call
1300 84 74 66
and ask for the Queensland instructor.

Seeing Eye Dogs Australia is a division of Vision Australia, the nation’s leadin provider for blindness and low vision services.
