Winter Weekend at Bunya Mountains

Escape to the picturesque Bunya Mountains National Park this winter, where pristine rainforest and ancient bunya pines await.

Relax by the fire in your cosy, self-contained chalet, breathe in stunning views and explore the many rainforest walks. You'll also have the chance to hand feed King Parrots and Crimson Rosellas and delight in close encounters with native wildlife.

Bunya Mountains, Queensland

There’s magic in the mountains, but there’s serious magic in the Bunya Mountains – the 11,700-hectare expanse of green space that plays home to one of Queensland’s most underrated national parks.

Bunya Mountains, Queensland

This spectacular wilderness sits atop the Great Dividing Range, approximately 1100m above sea level, rising out of the farming plains of the Western Downs and South Burnett who sit quietly in its foothills.

Bunya Mountains, Queensland

A relaxing and scenic 3-hour drive from the Brisbane CBD, this road trip will take you through the pretty country towns of the Lockyer Valley, through Toowoomba and out past Dalby.

Stop over in Toowoomba to stock up on weekend supplies and don’t miss Urban Paddock Café in Dalby for your coffee fix on the way. 

Bunya Mountains, Queensland

Pack the marshmallows and choose from a range of self-contained cabins available at the Bunya Mountains Accommodation Centre, or try Bunyip Springs Farm Stay at Maidenwell.

And, perfectly positioned within the Bunya Mountains National Park, Poppies Cafe, overlooking the rainforest, is the ideal spot to enjoy a delicious meal, tea, coffee or snack.

Another must-visit is Australia's highest whisky bar, Shackletons Whisky Bar where you can relax in front of the fire or under the stars on the deck with a choice of 116 whiskies.

So, start planning your trip now! You'll find 8 fantastic places to stay in and around Bunya Mountains National Park HERE.
