Description

Bunya Mountains National Park, Queensland's second-oldest national park, protects the world's largest remaining bunya pine rainforest. Until the late 1800s, Aboriginal people travelled here from far distant places for gatherings coinciding with large crops of bunya nuts. Today visitors camp, walk and relax in the cool air and enjoy mountain scenery and colourful birdlife. The park has three picnicking and camping areas and is a walkers paradise, with 35 kilometres of tracks (from 500 metres to 10 kilometres). Walks lead through rainforest, eucalypt forest and natural grassland balds, past waterfalls and onto lookouts giving panoramic views east or west. Watch red-necked wallabies graze and catch a glimpses of catbirds, rare sooty owls, noisy pittas and paradise riflebirds.
