Bunya Mountains National Park

Bunya Mountains, South Burnett Area

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.
