At Dandabah in the Bunya Mountains next to the National Park, you are sure to spot Pademelons and other Wallabies feeding on the lovely green grass near the Cafe and surrounds. We spotted quite a few infront of the large Conference Centre, so keep your eyes open.
There is also a camping ground here if you wish to camp, plenty of Wallabies around the campground.
There are quite a few different walks of all different levels of fitness that you can do.
At the settlement of Dandabah, walks will take you to Festoon Falls, Tim Shea Falls, Paradise Falls, Big and Little Falls, Barker Creek Lookout and Pine Gorge Lookout.
I have done some of these walks years ago, and they were lovely, so now on vt, thought would do them again, and get some photo's. No such luck. A wet, foggy, miserable day, it would not have been very good trekking through the Rainforest, so will just have to go back again!
The Government National Parks website has a map and all the necessary information on the walks, and what to see and do in the National Park.
Dandabah Settlement is the area where walks start from, the Conference centre is located, and so are a lot of different types of accommodation offered. There is also a Cellar Door, Craft shop, Convenience store, a lovely Restaurant and plenty of Picnic facilities.
Coomba Waterfalls are located at Maidenwell, which is a town located in the Bunyas. A short drive will take you to the falls. The short walk to the falls, takes you through a large area of Australian grass trees. When we were there, there wasn't any water going over, but there still was a nice pool, with mown grass and picnic tables. People were abseiling on the small cliff by the falls. You could see where the water has raged over the falls and down the creek at some stage.
To get there, the turnoff is in the centre of Maidenwell. Look for the Brown coloured tourist sign.
