Tucked away on the top of Buderim is a little park that I think is magical. Wirreanda Park straddles the corner of Short and King Streets, across the road from a group of shops and a lone traffic light. According to The Buderim Website, the rows of weeping fig trees were planted over a hundred years ago, originally lining the entrance to one of Buderim's original homesteads owned by the pioneering Lindsay family. I think Wirreanda Park is magical for a couple of reasons; firstly, because of the sense of history these trees radiate - which is kind of rare here on the Sunny Coast - and secondly because as you enter the park, its vast green canopy speckled with soft beams of sunlight filtering through seems to silence the outside world. It feels like the trees are breathing with you... So, if you are craving a mini nature escape, grab a coffee, your favourite mag and a picnic blanket, and head to the serenely magical Wirreanda Park :)
