“Lots of great walking paths”

There are so many great walks to do here! You will always see wallabies at Dandabah (main visitor centre) - if it's hot, look under the trees. In nut season, free food! :) Lots of nice birds, and it's much cooler than the surrounding low lying areas. You should go! The Bush Food cafe is great.

We booked a great Bunya Mountains House through the new Wotif - Holiday Rentals. A great big house in the Bunya Forrest. Our family went for lots of walks and saw lots of animals. The holiday was the most relaxing one we have had for ages!

Stayed in one of the houses rented by Bunya accommodation centre. Very comfortable with nice views. Very quiet and relaxing with some lovely walks

A day out from Toowoomba across the Darling Downs and the landscape changed to rolling hills with scrub then gum and bunya forest. Stopped at the main park centre where there are picnic areas and plenty of parking plus a variety of walks of varying lengths through the forest. Lots of warnings about avoiding the stinging nettles (which looked vicious), stinging trees (and we hadn't a clue what they looked like), ticks, and there was the odd reference to tiger and red bellied snakes: so we were on our guard. The walks were very good over well maintained tracks and had it not been a holiday and busy we may have seen more wildlife; we caught a water dragon shedding it's skin which ignored us and a mating dance of the Rufus fantail.
There's a couple of eating places, shop, gallery up the road, and a small "colonial" cottage with some examples of the bunya seed capsules and nuts plus a small museum.
It was a cool day but even so you would need to take plenty of fluids if you did the 9km walk. Whilst the main picnic area is relatively flat the walks are not suitable for the disabled, as there are steps to get to and from the main tracks.
There are camping sites for tents, not campervans and these have to be pre-booked (particularly in holiday season)

we camped, fed wild life walked until our legs dropped off, had a funny experience with some prickly pears, coped with the awkward moments of a first camping trip and laughed in the cool March air - perfect
