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.
