Here a few photos taken at Bunya Mountains NP. It is located near Dalby, QLD, a few hundred km west of Brisbane, and forms one in a series of small ranges on the western edge of the Great Dividing Range. Its name derives from the presence of Bunya pines, a type of Araucaria - one piece of evidence that Australia and South America were connected in the past (Gondwana)
Here two of the trees that give the NP its name - Bunya pines - "Araucaria bidwillii"
