Bunya Mountains is a unique wilderness area.

The 22,000 ha of National Park includes natural bald areas, eucalypt forests as well as subtropical rainforest dominated by Bunya Pines on the top and Hoop Pines (Auracaria cunninghamii) on the slopes.

Rich Variety of Bird Species.

There are 121 recorded species of birds here at Bunya Mountains. An early morning bird walk is rich with their calls and various hues flitting through the rainforest. See the empty land snail shells strewn over the forest floor after the noisy pitta has devoured their inhabitants.
