GET AWAY FROM IT ALL!
The Bunya Mountains National Park is located approx 200ks north west of Brisbane. They were formed in the Jurassic era, and until white settlement, they played an important part in Aboriginal culture.
They are the second oldest national park in Queensland.
THEY ARE ALSO THE LARGEST NATURAL BUNYA PINE FOREST IN THE WORLD.
The best way to reach them from Brisbane, is either
from Nanango via Maidenwell or from Yarraman.
From the opposite side, entry is via the township of Bell.
In case of accident or Emergency....
mobile phones call 112
advise your location and nature of the emergency
stay on the phone until you are told to hang up.
Mobile phone coverage is not reliable, but you can often get a signal near Mt Mowbullan.
The nearest hospitals are located at Dalby and Kingaroy.
Dandabah is the main settlement in the Bunya Mountains, and it is located right next to the National park.
There is all different types of accommodation available here, from Campground, Chalet, Log Cabin to Bed & Breakfasts.
The permanent population is only 40 people.
WILDLIFE - BIRDLIFE - WATERFALLS - WALKS
The National Park covers an area of 11,700 hectares. They are a part of the Great Dividing Range. This area is very pretty, and even in Summer, it can be quite cool. Nice views are to be had, as well as seeing wildlife and birdlife and enjoying rainforest walks. There are 40ks of trails with Tree identification.
Some of the Birds are King Parrots and Crimson Rosellas. Wallabies are seen on a regular basis and the varieties seen here are, Red Necked Wallabies, Swamp Wallabies and Pademelons. Brushed Tailed Possums and Ringtailed Possums are also seen at night.
