Bald Rock campground and picnic area

“The kids love coming here as much as we do. The campground is comfortable and the surroundings are so beautiful.”

Tranquil bush settings provide thoroughly enjoyable camping spots to base your journey. Just spark up the barbecues provided for a pre-adventure nibble, or savour a shady picnic spot.

From here you can easily access walking tracks to the water-streaked centrepiece that is Bald Rock’s dome - the largest exposed granite rock in Australia.

Don’t forget your bike helmet either; you’ll be traversing through a palate of brightly coloured flowering plants on the cycling trails, as they lighten the woodlands of this granite environment.
