Our story

Friends of Buddina is a not-for-profit community group run by volunteers.  Local residents formed the group in 2019 with the aim of SHARING INFORMATION about social, economic, environmental and land use development issues that impact on residents, visitors and neighbouring communities.


Buddina is a coastal residential community that values its natural assets and casual beach lifestyle.  It is home to approximately 4250 residents and many species of wildlife.  The Buddina foreshore provides significant nesting habitat for the endangered loggerhead turtle. Buddina maintains a unique and fragile balance between nature, its biodiversity, known coastal hazards and mankind – a balance that we feel needs to be protected. 


Retention of the existing character, amenity and lifestyle is also a key community consideration in balancing future urban development that ought to be environmentally and socially sustainable. 


Our group advocates on matters of community concern impacting directly and indirectly this balance.  

Together we can make a difference!
