Bunya Mountains National Park

    In Bunya Mountains National Park, experience a spellbinding landscape where spectacular bunya pines tower over tall rainforest along a mountain range that rises dramatically from the surrounding plains. Soak up stunning mountain scenery and spot a diverse range of wildlife as you explore on foot.

    Enjoy the scenery along the Great Bunya Drive to reach the park then set out to explore on foot. Walk through stands of tall bunya pines and feel a sense of connection with the Aboriginal people who for thousands of years celebrated the bunya nut harvest in this area. Discover natural grasslands (locally known as ‘balds’).

    Take your binoculars as you walk to spot some of the park’s 120 species of birds. Look for brilliantly-coloured Australian king-parrots and crimson rosellas and the blue-decorated bowers of the satin bowerbird. Spotlight at night to spy common ringtail possums and watch red-necked wallabies lazing around the picnic areas.

    Enjoy amazing views as you laze over lunch in a scenic picnic area, and make time to visit the Bunya Mountains Information Centre. To truly escape everyday life, stay a few days in one of the spacious grassy camping areas.
