The Bunya Mountains are part of Australia’s wilderness heritage. Mountain cottages in this scenic area are a great place to relax and chill out. Most of the mountains are 3500 feet (1100m) above sea level and enjoy a refreshingly cool sub-alpine climate all year round. The national park protects the largest remaining stand of Bunya Pines and the bunya nuts were a favourite Aboriginal food.
Bunya Mountains holiday rentals are well located for enjoying some wonderful drives through this area of national park. The elevation provides the necessary climate for Bunya Pines and Hoop Pines to thrive. They grow up to 60 metres in height and are home to many native birds and wildlife. Look out for parrots, wallabies, pademelons and brushtail possums on a hike or drive. Walking trails lead to waterfalls, rainforest and pinnacle viewpoints, making this a unique place for outdoor pursuits. Boating and fishng can be enjoyed in the area as well as discovering the abundant wildlife and exotic birds. Try kayaking and canoeing, go fossicking and gold prospecting and sample the locally produced wines. After dark, the unpolluted skies are perfect for stargazing and astronomy.
The national park has 35 km of trails within easy reach from your Bunya Mountains holiday home. Alternatively, explore the region the easy way along the Great Bunya Drive. This 390km route passes between Toowoomba and Gympie, encompassing both the Darling Downs and South Burnett regions. Along the way stop off at wineries, country markets and heritage museums and learn more about this unspoilt region.
Bunya Mountains holiday rentals have a cool subalpine climate due to the elevation. The temperatures are generally 5-10 degrees lower than the coastal temperatures. Average annual temperatures range from freezing to 30°C (86°F) with cool temperatures in the morning and evenings, so pack jackets and sweaters accordingly. The area has heavy annual rainfall totaling 1050mm so there may be rainy spells, mist and fog to contend with.
The nearest main airport to Bunya Mountains holiday rentals is Brisbane International (BNE) Airport. It is served by many airlines including British Airways, American Airlines, Delta and Virgin. The only way to reach the Bunya Mountains is by car so pick up a hire car and drive the 270km journey inland along the D’Aguilar Hwy. The mountainous roads are very winding and the journey will take about 3 ½ hours. However the breathtaking scenery should compensate for the twists and turns.
