Love this National Park
Aug. 2021
The walks are well maintained and you get some fantastic views over the valley. The Bunya trees are so impressive. There are several walks to choose from depending on how long you have and your level of fitness.

Unexpected rainforest beauty
Aug. 2021 • Couples
I went recently as a point of interest and to do the walk on the way through to Roma
The landscape changes from light Bush and pastoral land to lovely rainforest almost immediately once you’ve reached the top and descends down to the campground, accommodation chalets and visitors facilities (good clean toilets, restaurant/cafe/bar and grounds around the car park
I was impressed by the beautiful Bunya pines that become noticeable on the ascent, and commented on how beautiful the pines were; they apparently only grow in that region
There are a few linked tracks for walking, all easy grade, you could take youngsters around easily, most visitors were family groups
The walk is lovely, just shades of dappled rainforest greens, huge trees, strangler vines and little waterfalls
It’s a comfortable 4 km walk, easy and pleasurable
The restaurant had a reasonable menu and I had a late lunch of salad incorporating Bunya nuts, a bit like pine nuts (about $20)
They had an extensive whiskey menu as well, and apparently have Saturday afternoon whiskey tasting events
Very nice, recommend great day trip

Bunya Mountains National Park
Jul. 2021
Visited on Sunday 26th July to Wednesday 28th July. There is so much to do here, plenty of walking tracks to explore the mountain side and it's views. Collect a map from NP office or your accommodation place.

We visited the Bunya Mountains on a cold fine winters day.
Jul. 2021
We entered the Bunya Mountains National Park from Dalby via Kaimkillenbun, on the south eastern end. Reaching the bottom of the climb, the tarred road narrows and really needs some money spent on it to improve its quality, for the number of people who use it. Entering the park and when the road came in from Nanango, we finally knew where we were, as the paper map supplied by the Dalby Tourist Information Centre was a little limited on its information. When we arrived into the park at about 11am, there was a fairly stiff breeze blowing with the temperature sitting at 10c when stopping at the 'JS Fishers' lookout, which looks west from a height of 1070m's. The lookout and carpark were good, with some information available for visitors to look west, whilst viewing nearby Bunya Pines in the forest canopy and on a nearby ridge. It is the only lookout in the park for drivers to stop and for disabled visitors to utilise. The Bunya Mountains National Park accommodation is just north of the lookout, with the only road to use through the Park following the ridge to the north east before exiting the park, with us returning to Dalby via Bell. Park facilities for walks from the accommodation area are good in the dry, though on-site guide map information looked to be in worn condition and need upgrading. There was good parking and toilet facilities with a couple of nearby cafe's doing a good trade on the cool day. Driver's must keep a watchful eye on the wildlife whilst driving through the park. Overall it it good, but could do with some money spent on it to make it much better.

Nice walking track at Bunya Mountain

It was a nice and relatively easy walking track for family with kids. Nice view of the mountains and cool nice air.

Indifferent and rude customer service
Jun. 2021 • Family
I had to cancel my booking because the team there was completely unhelpful about helping source an extra bed, not to actually go over the limit of how many people where allowed in the accommodation, but to facilitate the care of a family member who had taken ill and I was responsible for. They like to finish each sentence with a sorry can’t help you and ‘No worries’ like they have actually been of any help. Completely selfish and unhelpful. I’ll be spending my money elsewhere and recommending that others do the same

It is all about Bunya trees and Bunya nuts and its worth it.
Mar. 2021
The two of us visited Bunya Mountain National Park in a hired campervan from Toowoomba.
We avoided the 4Km of dirt track past Quinalow because of the campervan. Google maps said it would take 1.5 hrs, but it was about at least 2 hours for us each way. A map from the Visitors' Centre at Toowoomba was helpful. We left Toowoomba early afternoon so there was not much time to walk a track - the Scenic Route which is 4Km long, was nice, we walked only about 1Km but had to come back as it was getting dark. The bistro/bar on the left side as one enters Dandabah wouldn't let us use their toilet as we were not eating or drinking there, directing us to public toilets down the road a bit, besides they had minimal Bunya nuts on the menu, their small grocery shop had frozen Bunya nuts for $10 a bag.
The Coffee shop on the hill on the right side as one enters the area had many Bunya nut options, e.g. cakes, ice cream, etc., but they were closed by the time we returned from the walk around 6pm.
Notes for next visit:
1. Go early, it is not a short drive and the walking tracks are very good, from 4Km to 9Km. The 0.5Km Bunya Bunya Walk is closed till Aug 2021.
2. Hit the Coffee Shop on the hill, definitely, in preference to the Bistro/Bar/Grocery Shops.
3. Stay 1-2 nights around there to really absorb the area, as well as maybe visit Kingaroy, the bakery in Blackbutt, and other national parks on the way back to Toowoomba, e.g. Crows Nest National Pk.
4. Take a jumper, as it is cooler temperatures up there. There were many mossies around, so take an insect repellent.

Bell and Walking in the Bunya Mountains
Mar. 2021 • Couples
First visit to this stunning part of Queensland. Stayed at an awesome AirBnB in Bell and drove into the mountains from both south and north directions. Equally stunning roads taking 30-40 minutes.
If you want great coffee and toast before you set off then Pips n Cherries is awesome. Also, the mountain cafe Poppys is awesome for breakfast before you start your walks. There are about 10 to choose from of different lengths. We did Barkers Creek Circuit (~10km) the first day and Cherry Point to Mount Kiangarow on the second (~12km). Bunya nuts were plentiful on the walk.

Sunsets every evening were different and stunning and the birds are awesome as are the wallabies. We did see a snake at quite close quarters, a reminder to be watchful.

Very beautiful drive. Also a fun drive. And the view is amazing. Very flat. The road is lined with Bunya Pine trees.
