Bunya Mountains National Park

Named for the ancient bunya pines that cover the area, Bunya Mountains National Park is also filled with rainforests, waterfalls, colorful bird species, amazing panoramic views, and lots of wallabies. The park is known for the kangaroo look-alikes, but whether or not you find them on any given day depends on pure luck. Kristin, University of Queensland (home university: Purdue University), says that when she and her friends visited, they didn’t find any all day until they made a stop at the toilets on their way out — where they encountered a whole mob of friendly wallabies!
