Bird Feeding

Wild bird feeding is located outside the General Store.  The Bunya’s is fortunate to be granted a licensed interaction plan so our visitors can get up close and personal to these wild and beautiful birds.
Birds have an important job to do for the forest.  By eating seeds from native plans and redistributing them, they help ensure its regeneration.  We are aiming to offer the birds a healthy snake without spoiling their appetite, so as not to interfere with their important ecological role.

A nearly plaque tells the story of how Gertrude and her child came to be buried in this very pretty spot.
