Hi

Thinking about visiting the Bunya NP QLD in early September. Couple of questions. I understand roads are quite steep and website site says caution with caravans. We will be towing about 2.5t off road van with Ranger. Is this OK and which is the best way to access the park with this type of rig? Second feedback on likely weather in September? Assume still cold nights?

Thanks in anticipation.

Whilst the road is quite steep in places entry from the Bunya Hwy (from Dalby or Kingaroy) should be ok. Entry via Maidenwell has a couple of steep sections & a little dirt, which is quite reasonable. Be mindful that there are quite a few blind curves to negotiate . All in all very doable.
September weather is usually chilly nights & lovely crisp clear days, a beautiful time of year to visit. Be "tick wise" even at this time of year.
Have fun, it's a beautiful place.

No such thing as a dumb question. The Bunya's are noted for scrub ticks, a small blood sucking parasite that can attach themselves to animals & humans. They are small (pin head to small finger nail size) & black . Normally you will feel them like a skin irritation but it is good to have someone else check hard to see places on the body for them. removal is quite simple, pair of tweezers, open, pushed down to the skin to get under the head, close tweezers & pull out. Check to see all has been removed & cleanse with antiseptic.

A mate of mine has had his van, 21’ behind a Landcruiser, up there a few times, he always uses the Maidenwell road as it is the straightest. The Dalby,Yamsion road has a couple of good hairpin turns and I not sure about the Kumbia one. They are all steep so be careful, especially coming down.

The weather should be ok, could be anything at that time of year though. You should probably see some fireflies at that time of year if you go for a walk after dark.
