The Buderim-Palmwoods Heritage Tramway Inc (BPHTI) was formed in mid 2003 to take over activities initiated by the Buderim Historical Society (BHS) aimed at preservation and restoration to walking track standard of a 1.6km section of the old Buderim Tram line that is still owned by Maroochy Shire Council (MSC).
Over the previous 10 years or so, BHS members Neil McGarvie and Trevor Robinson had cleared this stretch of lantana and other vegetation, identified culverts, and reopened most of them to reduce erosion due to overflow.
The formal objectives of BPHTI were defined as:
Initially, activities were directed largely to objectives 1 & 3. Over the last year, MSC have become the dominant player in track restoration. Access from Telco Rd now has a wheelchair friendly ramp, the next 800 metres has been regraded and gravelled, and drainage has been greatly improved. BPHTI is working with the Shire Council to plan the next stages of work with the ultimate aim of extending the walking track through to Owen's Creek Road at Forest Glen.
