A delightfully easy 2km circuit, suitable for families, wheelchair users, prams and even recreational cyclists. Doggy, on a leash, friendly too. Please click link for photos and more details. https://www.weekendnotes.com/buderim-walks-north-buderim-lake-circuit/

This was a beautiful starting point at the playground, and the lake was lovely. However the track given is not suitable for riding a bike. There were sections where there wasn't a bike path and we had to ride on the road. Then there was a steep grassy hill which wasn't suitable for cycling. A great walking track- and will just have to be adjusted slightly to ride the track.
