Bush camping is permitted anywhere throughout the bunya pines of Bulburin, but the most popular site is a former forestry barracks on Granite Creek Forest Rd. There are no facilities here besides a picnic platform, so campers must be totally self-sufficient. Bring your own drinking water and firewood (open fires are permitted, but no sites are provided). Scenic drives through the forest are recommended; a 4WD loop road passes through the rainforest.
