The best camping near Bunya Mountains National Park guide

Overview

About

Rainforest-clad peaks shelter the largest stand of ancient bunya pines in the world. Discover cool mountains, rainforests and waterfalls, unique range-top grasslands, panoramic views, colourful birdlife and enthralling stories of times long ago.

Ancient bunya pines give this cool mountain rainforest park its name. Queensland’s Aboriginal people have gathered here for centuries, and its popularity with campers is well deserved. Waterfalls, panoramic views, and rich birdlife are all here, just three hours’ drive northwest of Brisbane on narrow, winding mountain roads. The nearest towns are Kingaroy and Dalby, while Dandabah offers a general store, café, and picnic areas. There are three national park camping grounds, and more than 35 kilometres of walking tracks open the forests to hikers and campers.

Notable campgrounds

  • Best for families: Dandabah has good amenities and space for kids to play.
  • Best for sunrise views: Burton’s Well offers views to the northeast.
  • Best for birdwatchers: Bring binoculars to Westcott Camping Area to spot fairy-wrens and other birds.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. All campsites must be booked in advance, either online or by phone.
  2. Book at least three months in advance if you can, or up to 12 months in advance for Australian school holiday times.

When to go

The annual Bunya Dreaming Festival, run by local Aboriginal people, is held on January 26. Mountain temperatures are generally 7-10 degrees (Celsius) cooler than those on the coast, with winters dropping to freezing point. Always pack warm clothing, even in summer. In winter, expect mist, heavy fog, and rain. Between December and March, giant bunya nuts—weighing up to 10 kilograms—can fall from the Bunya pines, so avoid standing or parking under them during this time.

Know before you go

  • Camping permits are required in Bunya Mountains National Park. Apply online or by phone.
  • Apply insect repellent liberally to deter ticks, which can cause serious illness.
  • Mobile phone reception is poor in most camping areas.
  • All campgrounds have wheelchair-accessible toilets.
  • Boil or treat all water before drinking.
