Beautiful Walk

I love going on this walk, you are within the trees walking on a little path, just waiting for the top, but when it arrives, its a sight! Definitely not to be missed.

When we have visitors to Canberra, we love to take them on this half day trip, south into the Namadgi National Park and up the lovely Honeysuckle Creek valley to the short drive on a well maintained gravel road to the parking area among tall eucalypts and birdsong. From the car there is a 30 to 40 minute climb up... More

Not a difficult walk for unfit people. Nice view. We saw black cockatoos quite close. Take lunch with you to enjoy at top of rocks.

This is such an amazing walk that we passed people who had just discovered it the day before and they were coming back to do it again. Reasonably close to Canberra, the uphill climb is totally worth it. The view from the top is breathtaking and we could even see fog settled over Canberra. There are few railings so not... More

Love this walk & sitting on the rocks at dusk watching as the lights come on, all over the suburbs spread before you. A good work out for the reasonably fit.

The way there was challenging, but worth it a thousand times. Please check with the very friendly staff at the Namadgi NP information center about road conditions/closures and difficulty rating of the walk. We spoke with there with Heather and she was very helpful and gave lots of useful tips. I agree with her and would not recommend the steep... More

Went on a weekday on a spur of the moment idea. The road to get to the base was a bit of a test on my Suzuki Swift, however made it safe and sound. The hike to the peak is 2.5-3km, on a winding ascending trail. Very picturesque, you feel like you're in the heart of nature. However nothing compares... More

Booroomba rocks south-west of Canberra is one of the ACTs bush-walking and climbing meccas. The place has special signifance to me as I was a scout leader for many years and my troop was called Booroomba.
