Rising abruptly from the surrounding plains, the Bunya Mountains offer spectacular mountain scenery, views and bushwalking.

When you wander through the world’s largest forest of towering bunya pines; discover lush cool, green rainforest, rock pools, waterfalls and huge strangler figs in the Bunya Mountains you are transported to another place.

The Bunya Mountains has so much to offer. There are 35 km of walking tracks within the Bunya Mountains National Park ranging from a 500m stroll to a 10 km hike or you could enjoy a scenic circuit or perhaps a walk to the summit of the Bunya Mountains highest point, Mt Kiangarow to enjoy the spectacular views of the surrounding land.

Amid the rolling hills you will find cosy country chalets and a range of accommodation options that are nestled into the spectacular wilderness range. Brilliantly coloured king parrots and crimson rosellas fly down from the treetops to feed on your arm and red-necked wallabies lie lazily in the sun oblivious to your presence.

When it’s time to head indoors, treat yourself to afternoon tea at one of the many quaint coffee shops or just snuggle up in front of the fire, listening to the crackle of country wood.

The Bunya Mountains are a distinctive set of peaks forming an isolated section of the Great Dividing Range in southern Queensland. The mountain range forms the northern edge of the Darling Downs near Bell and Dalby

The Bunya Mountains National Park covers an area of 11,700 hectares (about 25,000 acres). The Mountains are shared between Nanango, Kingaroy and Wambo Shires but the overwhelming majority of the area lies within Nanango Shire in the South Burnett.
