Bunya Mountain Range

We are setting off on a 4km walk called 'Scenic Circuit' have to take a hat, water, good walking shoes, keep covered up as ticks fall from the trees - ugh!

This is us at the start, fine with me, honest - but didn't like walking on the wet rocks at all.

The Bunya Mountains were formed about 30 million years ago and thought to be the remnant of an old shield volcano. The mountains are like an island surrounded by plains and cleared farming land. They are a refuge of biodiversity, harbouring ancient species, distinct plant and animal communities and more than 30 rare and threatened species - so it says in the booklet.
