Entry fees

Park entry fees apply (not included in your camping fees).

Bookings No bookings are taken for this campsite. Please pay at the park on arrival. A self registration system applies. The self registration system involves visitors reading the information/interpretation board and completing their booking details on an envelope. Once complete, place the correct money in the envelope and follow further instructions. A ranger also calls into the park to check visitors have paid.

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.
