The Buderim Ginger Factory is one of the premier tourist attractions on the Sunshine Coast
The timber industry — beech, cedar, bunya pine and flooded gum — was important until the 1970s, and the land around Yandina has been used for beef and dairy cattle, fruit, sugar cane and ginger. Yandina and Buderim are famous for their ginger, which is meant to be the best in the world, due to the comparatively high rainfall and humidity. And it all started with five Buderim farmers meeting in an abandoned blacksmith’s workshop in the early 1900s and forming The Buderim Ginger Grower’s Co-operative Association Limited with 25 pounds capital, two wooden vats and 14 tons of green ginger. The Buderim Ginger Factory is in Yandina now, and it is also the world’s leading processer of macadamia nuts. The food market on Saturday mornings is terrific, and there is also an observatory with 16 telescopes on Wappa Falls Road.
