Godshill is location in the Bunya Mountains, approximately 3 hours drive northwest of Brisbane.
The Bunya Mountains National Park is Queensland’s second oldest national park, and is home to the world’s largest collection of Bunya Pines. As you meander through the park you will find lush rainforest, natural grassland and eucalypt forests. Look out for the many beautiful species of bird life (approximately 120 of them!) and wallabies.
Bunya Mountains’ mountain top location makes Godshill a popular respite for Queenslanders looking to experience roaring fires and cool temperatures – occasionally even in the middle of summer! Warm clothing is recommended, even in summer.
The climate is mild with patches of heavy fog and mists common during rain periods; Godshill is often “in the clouds”. Temperatures range from zero degrees during winter nights to a dry 28 degrees Celsius on a summer day.

- A small general store and a scattering of cafes and restaurants are located in the Bunya Mountains village, approximately a 15 minute walk from Godshill.
