Yamsion: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Bunya Mountains National Park


In Bunya Mountains National Park, experience a spellbinding landscape where spectacular bunya pines tower over tall rainforest along a mountain range that rises dramatically from the surrounding plains. Soak up stunning mountain scenery and spot a diverse range of wildlife as you explore on foot.

Enjoy the scenery along the Great Bunya Drive to reach the park then set out to explore on foot. Walk through stands of tall bunya pines and feel a sense of connection with the Aboriginal people who for thousands of years celebrated the bunya nut harvest in this area. Discover natural grasslands (locally known as 'balds').

Take your binoculars as you walk to spot some of the park's 120 species of birds. Look for brilliantly-coloured Australian king-parrots and crimson rosellas and the blue-decorated bowers of the satin bowerbird. Spotlight at night to spy common ringtail possums and watch red-necked wallabies lazing around the picnic areas.

Enjoy amazing views as you laze over lunch in a scenic picnic area, and make time to visit the Bunya Mountains Information Centre. To truly escape everyday life, stay a few days in one of the spacious grassy camping areas.

Cooyar War Memorial


In the Darling Downs township of Cooyar, two World War I memorials stand side-by-side in Hack Menkins Park, ensuring this community's loyalty to the Empire is never forgotten.

State parliamentarian Arthur Edward Moore MLA (who would become premier a few years later) unveiled the Cooyar War Memorial on 14 July, 1923.

A marble soldier statue standing on a pedestal honours the 25 local men who died in WWI. The adjacent stone plinth reminiscent of a gravestone serves as a roll call of all 110 men who enlisted; their names inscribed on a leaded marble plaque. Such displays provide valuable local history, unattainable from military records where names are categorised alphabetically or by military unit.

Public subscription and entertainment fundraising events amassed ?413.10.0 for the memorial, designed and produced by Toowoomba-based RC Ziegler and Son. The soldier statue was crafted and imported from Italy.
