Buderim VIEW Club
Buderim VIEW Club was formed in 1993. Each year we celebrate our birthday in December.
Currently, the Club sponsors seven Smith Family Learning for Life students and is actively involved in fundraising activities to raise donations for The Smith Family programs.
Our function room is at the very centrally located Buderim Tavern. At our luncheon meetings we always have interesting guest speakers. New members are very welcome. Attending our club’s events will help raise funds for educating students of underprivileged families. Luncheon cost is $30.
On the third Wednesday each month we have a social activity/outing.
- Meeting Day on 1st Wednesday each month at 11 am 11.30am
- Buderim Tavern

The Guest Speakers at our May lunch were Julie-Anne Simpson and Susie Warwick from Story Dogs. They were accompanied by their adorable dogs, Poppy and Archie who delighted our members.
Story Dogs is a nationwide organisation supported by volunteers who visit schools with their own pet dogs to help children who find reading a challenge. The children respond phenomenally well to the relaxing distraction - and the demand for this charity’s help is growing.
More volunteers are needed.
