Forest Glen – the hidden gem on the Sunshine Coast
If you’re searching for a place to call home on the Sunshine Coast, close to the hinterland and pristine beaches, have you considered Forest Glen?
Where the country meets the city, this emerging suburb provides the serenity of being immersed in nature alongside convenient connectivity to major retail, education and health infrastructure. Yes, this is the life you’ve been dreaming about!
Perfectly positioned where the Sunshine Coast Hinterland meets the coastal strip, picturesque Forest Glen is home to residential properties with bush surrounds, a popular shopping centre and five wonderful schools within 5km – including Sunshine Coast Grammar School and Montessori International College, which each offer high-quality education.
It’s also within easy access by car or public transport to Sunshine Plaza, Maroochydore’s restaurants, bars and cafés, and Mooloolaba esplanade and coastline (all only 12km away), as well as the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC), TAFE Queensland East Coast Maroochydore, Sunshine Coast University Hospital and Sunshine Coast Airport.
Stunning views of lush green valleys and magnificent mountains are also within easy reach, making outings to the Glass House Mountains, Maleny, Montville, Mapleton, Noosa or the Eumundi Markets all the more inviting.
Within Forest Glen itself, Kunara Organic Marketplace is home to an organic café, a deli and stores selling organic meat, organic fresh produce or natural health and skincare products. Sunshine Coast Grammar meanwhile provides an incredible educational setting for students from Prep to Year 12 – an independent, co-educational, Christian-based school, it is set on 40ha with its own lakes and rainforest – while Montessori’s new campus at Forest Glen includes an early learning centre and there are state schools nearby at Buderim Mountain, Woombye and Chevallum.
Lifestyle truly abounds at Forest Glen, which is also home to Buderim Forest, Vantage Homes’ latest development – a vibrant community of detached and split-level homes, terrace dwellings and boutique three-level rainforest villas.
Just imagine what your day could look like if you lived in Buderim Forest. You could start the day with a walk or run around leafy tree-lined track, or even a spot of yoga in one of the landscaped parks, before enjoying a delicious and nutritional breakfast at Kunara Café while their barista makes a perfect organic coffee to your liking.
Mid-morning you could head off to Sunshine Plaza for a spot of shopping, then grab a bite to eat at one of the many cafes or restaurants along The Esplanade at Cotton Tree before getting a little physical with some stand-up paddleboard action on the river and popping in to Buderim Tavern on the way home to take in some of the best views across the coast and hinterland.
There’s so many possibilities, but whatever you get up to, at the end of the day there’s nothing quite like taking a load off and unwinding in your brand new home while the evening rolls in.
Every home in the Buderim Forest development has been cleverly designed to create well-connected, liveable spaces with low-maintenance interiors and gardens so you’ll have more time to enjoy doing the things you love!
