Bunya Mountains National Park - Cities, Towns and Localities
Bunya Mountains National Park is home to the distinctive Bunya Pine (Araucaria bidwilli) which can be seen at many coastal beaches today around the Australia. This park once had a timber industry based on this magnificent tree. Today they are all protected as are the many other rare species of flora and fauna in this magnificent park, closest to Dalby and covering some 11700 ha.

The park offers spectacular mountain scenery with many peaks several of which are over 1,000 m above sea level. The highest being Mount Mowbullan and Kiangarow 1,135 m high. Rare high altitude grasses live here as do a myriad of birdlife that thrive on the seeds that abound here. Rare birds include the Coxen's Fig Parrot and the Black Breasted Button Quail.

There are many walking tracks to explore see below for details.

Aborigines had a close association with the area too gathering every few years to feast on the Bunya nuts which were often boiled or eaten raw, they can also be used in cooking.

Camping permits must be obtained before camping in the park. There are three campgrounds; Burton's Well, Westcott, and Dandabah all have drinking water facilities and toilets. Dandabah includes the visitor information centre, public phones, and hot showers. Burton's Well has disabled facilities. Access to the park is steep and not really suitable for caravans.

Contact the local Parks and Wildlife Service or visit the QLD National parks, marine parks and forests website. In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
