Bald Rock National Park
Fire affected area
Some areas of this park were affected by fire in 2019/2020. You’ll notice some changes to the landscape, as well as signs of recovery. Some areas may remain closed for longer to allow habitat to recover or because we’re repairing park infrastructure. Stay safe with these after-fire tips for visitors.
The Border walk takes you from the Bald Rock picnic area to the NSW/Queensland border. Heading north, you’ll be rewarded with views from the lookout over Bald Rock.

Beginning at the northern end of the Bald Rock picnic area, Border walk passes through creeks and swamp, rising above attractive woodlands.
When you reach the northern extent of the walk, take time to rest at the viewing site that offers a fine profile of Bald Rock.
If you walk quietly at dawn or dusk you may see grey kangaroos, red-necked wallabies and swamp wallabies. If you're in the campground at night, and with a good torch, you might also see possums and gliders. In spring, boronia, banksia, grevillea and a profusion of other wildflowers brighten the woodlands of this granite country. The best time of year to visit would have to be late July, with golden wattle trees blooming.
