At the edge of Bunya pine forest

Araucaria bidwillii

Bunya Mountains National Park, Queensland's second-oldest national park, protects the world's largest remaining bunya pine rainforest. Until the late 1800s, Aboriginal people travelled here from far distant places for bunya nut festivals. Today visitors camp, walk and relax in the cool air.

This park is a walker's paradise, with 35 kilometres of tracks. Also great for birdwatchers.

Elevation ~1000m.
