Bunya Mountains National Park Walking Tracks

To assist with the what you would like to experience and how far you wish to walk, we have outlined the various walks on offer in our majestic Bunya Mountains National Park. The shortest walk is a 500m stroll, while the longest circuit is 10km. An all-day is to walk from Dandabah to Mt Kiangarow along the spectacular walking tracks. Return by track or road (the road is shorter).

All the National Park walking tracks pass through diverse vegetation which can include dense rainforest to balds to forested areas. The views and waterfalls are amazing! (NOTE: all times listed are approximate to provide an indicative guide)

Russell Park Walking Tracks

Russell Park Walking Tracks

Carbines Chute 2km | approx 1 hour
Begins at Munro’s camp.  Stroll through the picturesque and peaceful rainforest with beautiful palms in the gullys to emerge at a bald spur.  A plaque commemorates Carbines Chute where for over 100 years logs were rolled down the mountain to be taken to sawmills at the bottom.  An easy, level walk.  Toilets provided.

Picnic Area to Chute No.3 3.4km return| 1.5–2 hours
Park in the picnic area below Mowbullan Guest House and follow the track sign at the entrance to the track down to the Chute.  You will walk through rainforest, forests and bald areas.  It is a steady climb from Chute No. 3 back to the picnic area.

Fishers Lookout to Cunjevoi Falls 4.2km return | 1.5–2 hours
Walk down steep downhill grade through rainforest, crossing a couple of gullies, and you will come out into forest country.  Follow the signs and go through a turn style down to Cunjevoi Falls.  This is a very pretty spot giving a limited view (due to trees) over valleys below.  The area is characterised by hoop pine.  It is a steady uphill walk back to the top of the mountain and Fisher’s Lookout.

Picnic Area to Fishers Lookout Circuit Track Total 4.2km | 2-3 hours 3.4km walk and 720m return by road
If you add in track to Chute No. 3 and return it will be a total walk of 6.4km (approx 3-4 hours).  We recommend leaving your car at Fisher’s Lookout and walking downhill to begin the walk at the picnic area.  It is great knowing your car is waiting for you once you have climbed back up the mountain to Fisher’s Lookout.  This walk is spectacular but is not for the unfit as the hills can be quite challenging.  It includes the track climbing over Little Mowbullan.  There is a rocky seat where you can catch your breath and enjoy the stunning views over the southern plains.

Wild Bird Feeding

Enjoy an up close and personal encounter with the local Australian King Parrots and the Crimson Rosellas.

Wild bird feeding began at this location in the 1970’s, when Joe Walker (who built the kiosk), offered feed to the parrots to keep them out of his veggie patch.  Like many others since he enjoyed the opportunity to interact with the Australian King Parrots and the Crimson Rosellas.

The Bunyas is fortunate to be granted a licensed interaction plan so our visitors can get up close & personal to these wild & beautiful birds.

Birds have an important job to do for the forest.  By eating seeds from native plants and redistributing them, they help ensure its regeneration.  We are aiming to offer the birds a healthy snack without spoiling their appetite, so as not to interfere with their important ecological role.

Visit the General Store to purchase a feed tray specially made for these birds. (Please note that feeding the birds with other food is strictly prohibited.)

  2. Duration is approx 30 mins
