Description

The majestic Bunya Mountains, situated about 150 kilometres from the coast, is a spectacular wilderness range forming an isolated section of the Great Dividing Range. The immense subtropical range of cool, green rainforest, eucalypt forests and woodlands is home to the world's largest forest of bunya pines. Native wildlife, wallabies and pademelons as well as 121 species of birds including brilliantly coloured king parrots, satin bowerbirds and crimson rosellas, call this area home.

The range features panoramic mountain scenery and breathtaking views over the South Burnett region and southern plains. Nights are alive with the sounds of the nocturnal creatures and a myriad of stars, while mornings have a fresh, crisp and clean mountain quality.

Aboriginal people historically used the Bunya Mountains as a meeting place for the various tribes scattered throughout Queensland and New South Wales. They feasted seasonally on the bunya nuts collected from the bunya pine trees (Araucaria bidwillii).

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, less than three hours from Brisbane and the Fraser Coast and approximately one hour from Kingaroy, Nanango or Dalby.
