Beerburrum is a small town in the Sunshine Coast Region.



Beerburrum is located close to the Glass House Mountains 60 kilometres north of Brisbane. The Bruce Highway passes from south to north through the locality.



The name is derived from that of a nearby mountain, Mount Beerburrum. In the language of the Indigenous Kabi nation, bir means green parrot and burru mountain. In 1916, Beerburrum was chosen to be a soldier settlement with over 550 farms allocated. Beerburrum Soldier Settlement was the largest soldier settlement in Queensland. The expectation was that hilly land would be suitable for growing pineapples and other fruits. However, by 1929, it was generally acknowledged that the scheme had failed (like many others), due to the farms being too small to be economically viable and there were shortages of skills, capital and markets.


Beerburrum Post Office opened by 1917 (a receiving office had been open from 1893) and Beerburrum State School opened on 22 April 1918. The village was bypassed by the Bruce Highway in the early 1970s, and that road was itself superseded by the current alignment in 1985. At the 2006 census, Beerburrum had a population of 287. At the 2011 census, Beerburrum had a population of 600.



The Beerburrum railway station is on the North Coast railway line, a coastal route connecting from Brisbane through to Cairns.
