Great Bunya Drive
West of Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast, the drive incorporates the magnificent Bunya Mountains National park, freshwater dams, pastoral homesteads and rural towns dotted throughout the Darling Downs and South Burnett. There are wineries, gourmet cafes, heritage museums and country markets waiting to be explored.
For generations, people have gathered at the Bunya Mountains, which was declared a National Park in 1908, the second oldest in Queensland. This natural wonderland was formed about 30 million years ago and shelters the largest stand of ancient bunya pines in the world today. The Bunya Mountains is a mix of moist rainforest, dry rainforest, grasslands, open forests and woodlands and is also home to distinct plant and animal communities, with over 30 rare and threatened species.
The region has a host of accommodation experiences including motels, guest cottages and B&B's as well as country pubs, farm stays and camping. Depending on what you are looking for, there is accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets.
We invite you to meander through and experience this hidden secret of South East Queensland.
