Harry’s on Buderim

At Harry’s on Buderim you’ll find a piece of Sunshine Coast history combined with Contemporary Australian Cuisine. While today, this historic 140 year old Queenslander is a bustling restaurant, its past makes for an interesting story.

Harry’s on Buderim was originally built in 1880 by Harry Board, a carpenter and coffee grower. In 1901 he decided to open his home, which was then located at 75 William Street, to visitors, and it

became the first guesthouse to operate in Buderim. The house was relocated to Buderim Forest Park in 1991, and in 1994 the homestead opened its doors for the first time as a restaurant.

Today Harry’s on Buderim is owned by Stuart and Lisa Bell who relocated with their family to the Sunshine Coast from Mornington Peninsula, Victoria. Stuart is the former chef of Ten Minutes By Tractor Winery Restaurant, where he held 2 chefs hats for 6 years running until the move up north.

With more than 30 years’ experience under his belt Stuart heads up the kitchen, with the focus firmly on using as much local produce as possible with ingredients sourced from local farmers and suppliers.

Some of the ingredients you’ll find on the seasonal menus include Fraser Isle Spanner Crab, Little White Goats Cheese, Noosa Reds Tomatoes and Green Valley Fingerlimes.
