Allow yourself a good four hours to return to Bald Rock picnic area and campground. This is a 7km walk and climb to the top of the granite dome, and you’ll be rewarded with superb scenic views as far as Girraween National Park in Queensland. The walking track heads along the base of Bald Rock, taking in refreshing forests of mountain gum and granite swellings.

Boronias and banksias also sprinkle the trail as you pass geckos and skinks quietly sunning themselves in various rock crevices. It’s not uncommon to find yourself accompanied by families of curious kangaroos either as you traverse through.
