Buderim Lions

Hands up if you love your community!

 Buderim Lions since 1967

Active in the vibrant community of Buderim, the Buderim Lions Club stands as a beacon of service and engagement, driven by its progressive ethos and the dedication of its members. Since its inception in 1967, the club has remained deeply committed to enhancing the lives of local residents, particularly children, youth, and at-risk adolescents, through a multitude of initiatives and activities.


At the heart of the club’s mission lies a fervent commitment to supporting the younger generation. One important endeavor is the Youth-of-the-Year Competition, a prestigious event involving students from three local high schools. This competition not only recognises academic excellence but also propels the winner onto a national stage, showcasing their talents and potential. Additionally, the club nurtures the next generation of community leaders through its support of the Leo Club at Chancellor State High, empowering young individuals to engage in fundraising and service projects both within their school and the broader community.


The Buderim Lions Club’s dedication to nurturing the holistic development of children extends beyond academia. Our flagship Walk-to-School program not only promotes physical activity, but also fosters social interaction among students from diverse backgrounds. Moreover, the club sponsors two Story Dogs, Archie and Benny, who provide invaluable support to children with extra reading needs, facilitating remarkable improvements in reading ability and self-esteem.


Beyond a focus on youth, the Buderim Lions Club is deeply intertwined with the fabric of the community, actively participating in and supporting various events and organisations. From festive fairs in collaboration with local institutions to essential services such as car parking and food stalls at community gatherings like Australia Day and Carols by Candlelight, the club continually strives to create a sense of belonging and solidarity within Buderim.


Central to the club’s enduring impact is its history of camaraderie and collaboration. With regular meetings held at the Buderim Tavern and our “Den”, the club provides a welcoming environment for members to connect and strategise on ways to further enrich the community.


The Buderim Lions Club revels in the spirit of service and community engagement. Through dedication and tireless efforts, we aim to uplift and inspire generations. We welcome visitors to explore this website or our Facebook page for further information. . . or simply contact our President and join. 


Buderim Lions is a progressive and active Club with engaged members,  serving the community and supporting local children, youth and at-risk adolescents.
