The small country township of Beerburrum is located along the Glass House Mountains Tourist Drive, now known as the Steve Irwin Way. The town is approximately 55km north of Brisbane, and can be accessed via a short detour when travelling along the Bruce Highway towards the Sunshine Coast.
Beerburrum offers visitors the chance to soak up nearly 100 years of local history thanks to the town’s World War I Interpretive Signage that includes old photographs, acknowledging Beerburrum’s involvement with the soldier settlement scheme for Diggers who served In World War I. Around 500 blocks of land were allocated to returned servicemen, and 437 took up the offer, and laid the foundation for the early growth of the towns along the rail corridor north of Brisbane. While you are there you can also visit Anzac Avenue, and the Avenue of Trees planted in 1920.
As well as a number of retail businesses, Beerburrum has a number of places of historical interest, including Beerburrum State School, Beerburrum Public Hall (School of the Arts opened in 1918), a railway station, and fruit grower’s co-operative.
