Whether you’re planning a day trip from Tenterfield, or a short vacation from Brisbane, it’s well worth visiting Bald Rock National Park.

From Bald Rock picnic area, follow the Border Link trail to the base of Bald Rock, where you’ll pass through eucalyptus, mountain gum and New England blackbutt. The trail leads to the NSW-Queensland border, and there are tremendous views of Girraween National Park, Queensland, along the way.

Bald Rock picnic area has gas barbecues and picnic tables where you can while away the hours. And as it’s the only established picnic area in Bald Rock National Park, with plenty of shaded spots to escape the heat, it’s a popular place to visit in summer.
