View from the top of Bunya Mountains.

After Jondaryan the next destination was the Bunya Mountains National Park. What a steep climb it was, it certainly tested “Matilda” and we were very pleased at the way she just dug her toes in and kept going to the top 

taking a breather after reaching the top.

The views were amazing. The campground had to be prepad but fortunately there was a computer in the office and we could pay via visa.

$10-90 but there was no power or showers. We shared the campsite with a crowd of wallabies and only 5 other campers.

Even though it was threatening to rain we went for a walk through the beautifuland impressive rain forest.

We decided to stay a second night but the computer was down and the rangers will not handle cash and a big sign announced that there would be heavy fines for camping without a permit.So after only one night we moved on.

If you click on each picture it will show a larger image.

The trip down the mountain was very stressfull as it was so steep, it had large signs saying use low gears and not suitable for trucks or caravans. I’m afraid I used the brakes too much and overheated them so we had to stop, have a cuppa and let us all cool down…

    Pity that the Bunya Mountains campground was not so good. There used to be two camping areas but they both came under Nat Parks. It’s certainly a beautiful area, though. The road from Blackbutt is much easier.
    Where to next?
    I intend leaving GC on ANZAC day. Will let you know nearer then where I’m going!
    Keep on having fun, travel safely.
