Starting from the Bunyaville Picnic Area, Bunya, this circuit walk explores the dry open eucalypt forest of Bunyaville Conservation Park via the Bunyaville Track. If you’re new to hiking, or just want to stretch your legs for a little with your kids, this peaceful hike is definitely for you. As you stroll around the diverse woodland, keep an eye out for koalas on trees. Listen for the laughing kookaburra and the pied currawong and you might spot them as well. The generally quiet picnic area can be a great finish to this little journey. Look out for snakes in warmer months, especially the mesmerizing carpet python. Come early or on a weekday to minimize traffic noise. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
