WARNING: Falling bunya pine cones

This alert applies to the following parks:

Each year from January to March, massive cones develop and fall from the lofty crowns of bunya pine trees.

When walking or resting near bunya pine trees, beware of falling cones - which weigh up to 15kg.

Lingering under bunya pines at this time of year may result in serious injury.
