Bunya Mountains Park expands

THE Queensland Government has extended the Bunya Mountains National Park by 52 hectares.

Range top grasslands from a major part of the new block.

National Parks Minister Dr Steven Miles said the steep block at the southern boundary of the park had high conservation values and cost the Queensland Government $214,500.

"The government is committed to enhancing the state's protected area estate, and one way of achieving this is to purchase suitable lands as they come on to the market,” Dr Miles said.

"Aside from its 'grassy balds' that are unique to the Bunya Mountains and some special rainforest areas, the block contains koala habitat and a legless lizard, the collared delma.

"Adding this block will also help Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service consolidate the management of the park.

"The added block is surrounded by national park on three sides. It adjoins Bunya Mountains Rd, and is on the left after you leave the Dandabah camping area and head back to Dalby.”
