Bunya Mountains

infoBunya Mountains Info

The Bunya Mountains are located within the magnificent Sunshine Coast Hinterland - the range forms an isolated section of the Great Dividing Range. The resident rainforest is home to eucalpyt forests and the largest ancient Bunya pine forest in the World. This beautiful encounter with subtropical nature is just a short drive from Brisbane and the pretty coastal resorts on the Sunshine Coast.

The Bunya Mountains reach up to over 1100 metres, the tallest points being Mounts Mowbullum and Kiangarow. Since 1908, 11,700 hectares of the Bunya Mountains has been reserved as National Park, making it Queensland's second oldest national park.

Apart from offering magnificent ancient forests there are roughly 120 species of birds and a plentiful array of mammals and other animal life that call the Bunya Mountains National Park home. Indeed, some rare animals live here including both the Sooty and the Powerful owl. More common are the King Parrot with their bright colours and both the swamp and red-necked wallabies.

Within the National Park there are some 35 km of walking tracks, some short, some up to 10 km long. The available tracks have been numbered and classified according to experience and fitness levels.

Camping is available within three main camping areas at Dandabah, Westcott and Burton's Well. A camping permit is a requirement and attracts a small fee (To book call 13 13 04).
