Palmwoods-Buderim Tramway.

The tramway between Palmwoods, on the North Coast Line, and Buderim Mountain will be officially opened next Friday by the Minister for Railways at the Buderim Mountain terminus. This connecting link between the main North Coast Line and the important fruit growing district of Buderim Mountain has been about two years in construction, and the chief engineer (Mr. Geo. Phillips, C.E.) has turned out, espicially in that part of the line which marks the ascent to the mountain, a remarkable piece of work, the view from some of the curves, looking down into the gorges, being awe-inspiring.

The ascent is about 600ft. in a distance of two and a half miles. The full length of the line is about seven miles, and the approximate cost has been £35,000. Buderim Mountain, the terminus of the tramway, is one of the show places of Southern Queensland.
