 The existence of the unique war memorial sanctuary is not widely known outside of Buderim.

The Sanctuary is situated in the heart of Buderim. It is an area of approximately 11 hectares of attractive rainforest and native bushland.  It is a flora and fauna reserve known to support two hundred and seventy two indigenous flora species, a haven for over one hundred species of birds and a significant habitat for a range of large mammals,  and swamp wallabies.

The Foote Sanctuary strongly promotes the future of the "Richmond Birdwing Butterfluy" with a rigorous planting program. In our "LINKS" section we have a related web site.

     It has walking tracks, a picnic area with toilets, electric barbeques and sections set aside as plantations with spaced trees.
