Buderim Pioneer Cottage Significance Assessment
The purpose of the Buderim Pioneer Cottage Significance Assessment is to provide the Buderim Historical Society with a significance assessment of the historical collection stored and displayed at the Buderim Pioneer Cottage site. This report also provides some strategic recommendations for its future management, access, storage, display and interpretation. The assessment and report was undertaken in 2017 by Josh Tarrant, Museum Development Officer for South East Queensland (Queensland Museum) in consultation with the volunteers of the Buderim Pioneer Cottage.
