Bulburin is approximately 120 km south of Gladstone and approximately 75 km north-east of Monto. Two-wheel-drive access is only possible from Builyan on the Gladstone-Monto Road. Turn into Dalga Road and continue along the Bulburin Forest Road to the site of the old forestry barracks, 16 km from Builyan. A four-wheel-drive through route leads 33 km to the Bruce Highway. From the Bruce Highway turn west into Granite Creek Forestry Road near the Granite Creek rest area, 64 km north of Gin Gin or 38 km south of Miriam Vale. This access road is four-wheel drive only.

The road from the site of the old forestry camp to the Bruce highway and the 4WD Loop Road over Scotts Bridge provides a rocky touring experience with picturesque views of rainforests and scenic landscapes. QLD DERM suggest you have four-wheel-driving experience, recovery gear, and a chainsaw and do not attempt these roads in wet weather or a 2WD.

Bush camping is permitted in most places in Bulburin National Park—the site of the former forestry barracks is one location. Camping permits are required and fees apply. There are no facilities available at the park, so you must be self-sufficient.
Bulburin National Park encompasses the subtropical rainforest and dense stands of dry rainforest with emerging hoop pines that cover about half of Bulburin—together, they form the largest rainforest remnant in central Queensland.
The rest of Bulburin contains open eucalypt forest and woodland and tall open forest with a rainforest understorey. Dry open forests with New England blackbutt, spotted gum and white mahogany grow on the more exposed western ridges and foothills. Mature hoop pine plantations in the adjoining State forest areas are being harvested for timber. Bulburin National Park has the only known population of the endangered and rare Bulburin nut tree. Apparently less than 40 of these trees remain.

A variety of wildlife lives in the forest including wompoo pigeons, red-necked and red-legged pademelons and red-eyed tree frogs.
