The Bunya Pine is a large evergreen coniferous tree. It has a straight, rough-barked trunk, and a distinctive dome-shaped crown. The cones are large, soft-shelled and seeds are edible. The cones can weigh over 10kg and fall intact to the ground. The seeds have been an important food resource for Aboriginal people.
