Bask in the beauty of Bunya
Located in the amazing Bunya Mountains, the Bunya Mountains Accommodation Centre at Dandabah is your first stop to get your keys, where you will enter the lovely and scenic Rainforest Road that will take you to your home away from home for the weekend.

With a name like Bunya Paradise how can you go wrong? So we decided to take on this accommodation and we were not disappointed.

Your accommodation for the weekend!


The drive along the road shows many of the 90 homes and cabins to rent, so you get a good look at several of them as you drive along. There is so much to choose from here and you have the choice where to pick from, based on how many are in your group and what you are looking for. All of them are listed on the website so you can see them before you drive up here.

Make sure you bring friends to enjoy with you. Different accommodations up here cater to different numbers of people. Bunya Paradise sleeps 8, though 2 of those would have to sleep on the pull out sofa in the loft, which is not so bad, really. There is 6 chairs to use at the dining room table but 8 can sit comfortably outside on the deck.

The road to your weekend retreat!


Each bedroom comes with a lovely, comfy bed, and an electric blanket, a thoughtful addition as it is winter up in the mountains which comes complete with cool winds and low night time temperatures.



The fireplace is an absolute bonus, heats the living room wonderfully and can be used all the while you are there. Check before you come as you will need kindling and firewood, maybe even an axe, but again, this will depend on where you are staying.

If you get a chance, the deck is a great place to see, to sit, to watch the birds and the magnificent sunset.

The kitchen is well stocked with pretty much all the implements you need to cook your meals, though make sure you refer to the list of items they give you to bring. We were short on was garbage bags.

Birds of the Bunya Mountains!


The atmosphere is 80's décor, colorful, comfortable, warm, cozy, and beautiful woodwork throughout.

Wallabies!


Then there is the area you are spending time in. There is no shortage of wallabies and colorful birds to keep you entertained. The Bunya Mountains National Park sits adjacent and you can choose one of several hikes, all are varying lengths.

There are some shops and a few restaurants that serve lovely, homemade dishes, complete with Bunya nuts at the accommodation centre.

Yummy homemade burgers!


You can come for a few days or easily spend a week here. Either way, come to relax, bring your camera, telescope, book and hiking boots and your love of the natural beauty.
