The picnic area and National Park visitor information centre at Dandabah have enjoyed a $330,000 upgrade, thanks to the State Government.
National Parks Minister Steven Miles said visitors and bushwalkers at the Bunya Mountains would benefit from the rejuvenation of the area, the first major upgrade since 1991.
“This upgrade has been two years in the making and I am pleased that visitors can now enjoy better barbecues and picnic tables, resurfaced paths, and take a stroll across the newly refurbished pedestrian bridge, as a result of this work,” Mr Miles said.
“The information centre has also been revamped, and it is a great place to start learning about the park, with panels about Indigenous history and culture, fauna and flora, and geology.
“It’s a really picturesque area well-known for its impressive stands of tall bunya pines.
“The Bunyas have long been a significant gathering place for Aboriginal people from across south-east Queensland. That’s why our rangers consulted with the Traditional custodians to provide richer cultural insights for visitors and ensure crucial ties to country are maintained.
“This is a place that should be on everyone’s ‘to do’ list over the Christmas holidays, and take advantage of the cooler temperatures during the height of summer.”
