Of the many parks and reserves I visited during my 70-day trip to Australia, this was one of my favorites national parks. Bunya mountains is an oasis of moist forests in a sea of cultivated or degraded land. The park is famous for the Bunya pine (not really a pine), a very tall tree that grows primarily in this park....

Great three nights camping at Westcott Campground despite it being a little blowy at times. Heaps of wildlife to be heard and seen. Did about 30+ kms of trails in about 2.5 days, none of the trails were especially challenging, in very good condition and contained a lot of variety if your paying attention. Some of the oldest and largest... More

I've been visiting the Bunya Mountains for years now and simply love it. Sitting on a balcony drinking in the view is solace for the soul especially when you are also relaxing tired muscles from tramping through the bush. The walks are varied enough that there is something for everyone no matter what fitness level. There are also many accommodation... More

The Bunya Mountains are well worth the journey, regardless of where you come from. The climate is always cooler than the surrounding lowland areas and a great place to visit in Summer. The walks are pleasant and most link up with others. If you like walks in rainforests, this is for you. The wildlife is abundant, and casually hangs around... More

A hidden gem. Great country drive from Brisbane. Walk in the rainforest on numerous tracks. Surrounded by wallabies/bird life. Cafes, restaurant and accommodation including camp site nearby. Magical

It's become a family tradition now to head to the Bunya Mountains each year in Spring. Dandabah camping ground at the Bunya Mountains is essentially an open paddock. Expect tents next to decked-out caravans. It's conveniently located near the entry points for many of the forest walks and also near a coffee shop and corner store if you need a... More

what a beautiful place to visit or stay. upclose and personel encounters with Australian wildlife as they interact with you. Wonderful walking tracks,well maintained and marked through pristine Bunya pine forrests.one could easily think they were in the Alps. Bird watchers will be in awe as there are many to look at.

Get back to nature, relax and just enjoy nature in all its beauty. Take your time and just breathe the fresh mountain air as you walk around the national park.

A hidden gem of the south east that makes for a nice, quiet getaway. The walks weren't too challenging and offered some beautiful scenery.
