The bunya pine (Araucaria bidwillii) is the sole survivor of an ancient Gondwana lineage within the Araucaria genus (and one of the two Australian species of Araucaria that our tour company is named after), a magnificent and distinctive tree of great importance (nutritionally and spiritually) to the Aboriginals. 

The Bunya Mountains north-west of Brisbane preserve the largest surviving stand of bunyas. Being in these forests has a primitive feel to it, the bunya trunks looking a bit like the legs of giant elephants amongst the ferns of the forest floor. A great bird life, mountain views and a well-maintained network of walking trails  all add to the experience.

You will stay overnight  in a lovely shared-facilities chalet adjacent to the ancient bunya forests, awaken to bird calls and the sight of wallabies grazing nearby. We will take a gentle guided walk through the forest on the afternoon of our arrival from Brisbane, and another the following morning, and you will have some free time to take photos, go birding or just relax.
