(Araucaria Bidwillii) or Bonyi (Gubbi Gubbi word for bunya pine).
Bunya nuts have been a traditional food for Australian Aboriginal people for thousands of years. They were even eaten by Australian Dinosaurs!
The nuts taste like chestnuts with pine notes.
The Bunya Tree (conifer) is native to the Bunya Mountains and the Blackall Ranges in Queensland and dates back to the Jurassic era 180 million years ago. The trees grow to 50 metres and their pine shape fans out at the top.
The tree produces massive bunya pine cones, which can be filled with up to 100 nuts or more and can sometimes be seen broken on the ground in Northern NSW and Queensland.
