This half-day walk is a great introduction to the Namagdi National Park which lies within the ancestral lands of the Ngunnawal Aboriginal people who have known this place as ‘Booroomba’ which means ‘wallaby jumping over rock’. This is a true ancient trail that has been walked by the oldest culture on Earth, it was a real privilege & joy to... More

We have done this walk a few times now and love it. It's great exercise, stunning scenery and a lovely place to have a picnic.

Short but steep track. Easy for everyone. The view of the out look is breathtaking, Remember to go around the rocks, and different position on the rock can see quite a different of the view.

About an hour from Canberra, depending on which route you take, we took the scenic one through the Cotter Reserve is a view well worth the walk. We started the walk at around 1015, which was I believe the best time as it wasn't to hot or cold. It is a steep climb and can get the heart rate going.... More

The fact this walk is only 30 minutes out of the middle of the city is amazing. The walk provides a great vista out over the territory and if you are into your rock climbing then Booroomba Rocks is the place to do it.

Fantastic walk. My three "special needs' children and I (who have had five abdominal surgeries and am awaiting another) decided to try it in a cool, clear winter day. It is a steep climb. There was some complaining on the way up but we rested three times for a few minutes and then kept on tramping upwards. The children were... More

We were looking for a great nature walk that was easily accessible. It took about an hour to get up there with wonderful bird and plant life on the way with spectacular views from the rocks. Well worth it.

The Brindabellas are full of wonderful scenery and you won't be disappointed with this children friendly walk - it is long but relatively easy and when you get to the top of the rocks the views are magnificent. Don't forget to slip, slop, slap, and put on a hat in summer and take a jacket in winter.

The view from Boorooomba Rocks is impressive. The day I was there it was a good day and I could clearly see Black Mountain Tower and had a close to 270 degree panorama from Mt Bimberi to the west right around the north and down to the Tinderrys in the south east. The road in to Booroomba Rocks carpark turnoff... More

I like the Booroomba Rocks Walk. It has great geology. If, however, you aren't a rock nerd, you might feel sad about the fires that devastated the area and made the trees and shrubs considerably less sheltering and less interesting. Not for all markets, but if you like walking and like rocks, it's fantastic.
