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

Great hike and good views from the rocks. The hike took around 2 hours round trip, gradual incline under the shade of large trees. At the rocks there was a small campsite the views from the rocks were fantastic.

This was the highlight of our day. It took us nearly an hour to get up to the ridge, but as soon as we saw the view, the whole trip was worth it. The day we walked, we could see the centre of Canberra and the Telstra tower, beautiful.

What a fantastic uphill walk. The first part of the walk includes a possible short cut going over huge mounds of dirt placed on the roadways to stop vehicular entry, and is where one could do a fetlock. Somewhat slow and risky even for the nimble til you get beyond. Love this walk cannot wait to go again. humps o

This place has a spirituality that must be experienced alone for it to kick in. I'm not the touchy feely type but the sense of place comes upon you when you sit in solitude as the sun rises or sets. I don't know the history but this is a special place.

In the early 1970's I was involved in the first efforts to walk to this location, resulting in the track being eventually cut. The first big event was the Easter National Rock Climbing meet in early 1974, when over 170 tents were pitched near the start of the track. Today that is not allowed which is a real pity. It...

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
