Attractions and Tours / Heritage / The Bunya Pine
The Bunya Pine is a core part of the history of the Bunya mountains. From December to March, the pines drop cones with edible seeds or bunya ‘nuts’. Heavy crops occur about every three years, and for many generations, large groups of Aboriginal people gathered at the Bunya Mountains to participate in the bunya festivals that coincided with this natural event. Custodians of the Bunya Mountains and Blackall Ranges invited people from far and wide to join the gatherings. The festivals were times for ceremonies, law-making and resolving disputes, renewing friendships, passing on lore, sharing ideas and revitalising spirituality.
