How to Find Us

Our Location

Bellbunya is located in the Blackall Ranges outside Eumundi off the Kenilworth/Maleny Tourist Drive, a one-and-a-half hour drive north of Brisbane, half-an-hour west of Noosa and serviced by airports at Brisbane and Maroochydore.

Car Pool

It's good socially, environmentally and economically to share a ride. When you make your booking at Bellbunya, we will send you some more information about car pooling. If you are coming as part of an organised group (e.g. a retreat), ask your event coordinator about car pooling.


Cycling to Bellbunya is possible for experienced cyclists only who are comfortable with sharing the road with trucks on rural roads with, at times, narrow shoulders.  It is possible to cycle from and to Nambour and Cooroy train stations. For more information on possible routes and timing contact Gavin Hardy at gavindah@gmail.com .

To get to Bellbunya from Brisbane Airport you can take trains from there to Eumundi although the service is more frequent if you go Nambour  and then a bus to Eumundi.

We often meet volunteers at about 2 pm on Tuesdays, and this needs to be arranged ahead through the volunteer registration form.
