Bunya Mountains National Park is a great place to go camping or stay in a holiday rental. Bunya Mountains is just over a three-hour drive from the Fraser Coast region. The park has three camping areas catering to a range of experiences. Camping permits are required and fees apply. Bookings should be made well in advance for peak times such as school holidays and long weekends as well as if you have a large group. The roads that lead up the Bunya Mountains are steep, winding and narrow. The roads are not suitable for long or heavy vehicles but discretion is reserved for caravans, motorhomes and large buses. Remember to fill up before going up the mountain as there is no fuel in the Bunya Mountain National park.
There is a range of activities available for the whole family and all types of abilities. There is bird feeding on allocated times and days at the Bunya mountains convenience store with bird seed available to buy at the time. The Bunya Mountains has walking trails that vary in length with some being lookout walks or circuits with great views, boardwalks and maybe even a waterfall or two. The walking tracks are safe but it’s best to wear appropriately closed in shoes and clothing, wear sunscreen and insect repellent and always be on the lookout for wildlife as there can be anything from bush turkeys to snakes.
It is recommended to pack warm clothes and layers as the nights can get cold all year round and pack a raincoat as you’re in a rainforest in the mountains and weather can be unpredictable.
If you feel like just relaxing in the camp area you can still have a great experience. Wallabies fill the fields and birds fill the trees. For lunch, you can go to the café or restaurant and have a delicious warm meal.
No matter if you have a family with children or just a couple there is something for everyone.
