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. Every kid that went trough my troop was taken there for their formal entry into the troop and every single one of them continue... More

A lovely walk through the bush with a couple of steepish areas to negotiate. At the top keep an eye on any kids as it's a long way down. Brilliant views over the countryside. Do yourself a favour and explore the granite slabs to the left as you approach the top, it's well worth the slight detour.

From the carpark, it is a half hour moderate climb (some stairs) to the top - and the views. Just superb. It is amazing to realise there is such natural beauty so close to Canberra.

You can camp around this area as well (Namagdi National Park). The walk takes around 2 hours return and isn't too steep or difficult. But you want to be reasonably fit to comfortably do it. It's great exercise and the walk up is quite serene. Up the top you can also walk around to different parts of the rocks.

I walked from the car park and the walk isn't too hard. A bit of a climb and the view is really worth it.

Walk, hike, camp, drive, cycle and so much more all in one place! If you are not camping( requires booking) it's an excellent one day getaway from Canberra. Spend half the day at the rocks, and other half stopping and enjoying the drive back to Canberra! I might not go there specially if I am driving from a different city... More
