Travel via Allora, the childhood home of Mary Poppins creator PL Travers, then see the floral displays at Toowoomba’s Queens Park. Visit arts and craft shops in the quaint village of Hampton and enjoy lunch at the Farmers Arms country pub in Cabarlah. Drive beneath stunning rainforest canopies and ancient bunya pines to Bunya Mountains National Park, relax in the privacy of your Bunya Mountains Chalet with stunning views of the rainforest.
