Description

Perhaps the most popular walk in Bunya Mountains National Park, this easy walk from the Dandabah picnic area allows you to discover bunya pine forest, delightful rock pools, Festoon and Tim Shea falls and a variety of mountain scenery. Look for epiphytes clinging to tree trunks and pass through a huge strangler fig. Pine Gorge lookout offers a panoramic view of the valleys and hills of the South Burnett.

Ticks are active all year round. Reduce exposure to ticks by wearing insect repellent and check yourself carefully for ticks. Avoid lingering under bunya pines between December and March when large cones containing bunya nuts fall from the lofty crowns of tall trees.
