PROJECT | 15 ST MARTINS TERRACE, BUDERIM.Buderim
is an urban centre on the Sunshine Coast
, Australia. It sits on a 180-metre (590 ft) mountain which overlooks the southern Sunshine Coast communities. The name "Buderim" is from the local Kabi Kabi Aboriginal
word for the hairpin honeysuckle, (Badderam) Banksia spinulosa var. collina
, which grew abundantly in the sandy country around the plateau.
Buderim was seen as a resource for timbergetters, as huge stands of Beech and Australian Red Cedar
grew across the mountain. Some trees were so large they were wasted due to the lack of transport to carry them down to the river for despatch to Brisbane. Once clear felled, the plateau was used for farming. The rich red volcanic soil found on Buderim made the area particularly suited to growing almost everything, from bananas to small crops. The most notable were coffee and (in the 20th century) ginger, the crop which made Buderim famous. The farming pioneer Burnett won awards for the quality of his coffee at shows in London during the late 19th century.
The brief was to showcase the proximity of this luxurious home on the highest point of Buderim with the spectacular views to the Coast and to the Hinterlands. Canon equipment, lenses etc for the interiors. The video edited in Premiere Pro CC.
