Bunya Mountains Community Markets

    The Bunya Mountains Community Markets are held on the last Sunday of every month from 9am to 2pm. Enjoy over 20 market stalls with locally grown produce, homemade products, art and craft. Located within the iconic Bunya Mountains National Park the markets make for a fantastic day out for the entire family.

    Some of the ‘must-tries’ include a variety of food made with the local Bunya nuts, such as the Bunya burgers, beef and Bunya pies, scones, carrot cake and the famous Bunya nut ice-cream. There is plenty of space to sit, relax and enjoy a picnic lunch.

    There is something magical about the Bunya Mountains that forces its visitors to relax; a unique combination of crisp clean mountain air, soaring pines and majestic scenery. Spend days doing as much or as little as you desire. Enjoy a short or long bushwalk, horse cart ride, or immerse yourself in this a bird watcher’s paradise.

    Bunya Mountains National Park

      The Bunya Mountains National Park is perched 1100 metres high and 200 kilometres north-west of Brisbane and considered Queensland’s second-oldest national park being gazetted in 1908. It’s there ancient rainforest-clad peaks stand tall and shelter the world’s largest formation of bunya pines (Araucaria bidwillii) – once a popular meeting place for Aboriginal folk to gather nuts in the 1800s.

      Trek 35-kilometres of walking trails, through eucalypt forest and natural grassland covered in hoop pines, rare orchids and herbs. Be rewarded with panoramic lookouts and keep an eye out for catbirds overhead and red-necked wallabies grazing.

      The Bunya Mountains offer the quiet allure of a retreat environment favoured by families, groups and honeymooners alike. The Bunya Mountains are pristine, peaceful and spectacular, and its position only three hours from Brisbane and the Fraser Coast and approximately one hour from Kingaroy, Nanango or Dalby makes it an ideal weekend or long weekend getaway for locals.

      Overnight in any of three designated camping and picnic areas at Dandabah, Westcott and Burtons Well with a permit, and keep an eye for glimpses of the rare sooty owl, noisy pitta and paradise riflebird.
