Following the well marked trails is easy that take you to the top from the Car Park. You can chose between a steep 1.2 km ascent or a more leisurely, gradually sloping 1.5 km route. Both routes meet near the top. Anyone can make the top on the longer route- just take your time. There is such beautiful scenery all... More

This was an out of the way random stop on our drive from Brisbane to Sydney. We didn't follow the traditional down the coast route because honestly there was too many people. Loved this park, loved the hike, loved the views literally could have spent a couple days here. What an amazing hidden gem with no one around unlike other... More

Second only to Uluru this granite monolith rises out of the trees. You can park near the base and chose the hard quick route or easy slow route to the top for 360 views of Queensland and NSW

Living fairly 'local' to this site it's not difficult to visit at the drop of a hat. I enjoy ... taking the long way to the top. When you get to the summit DON'T FORGET TO SIGN THE VISITORS BOOK IN THE METAL CASE !

worth the drive, and the view and climb was very enjoyable. No need to scale the entire thing though, you'll get the same joy if you can't make it all the way to the top

We stopped for an overnight camp at Bald Rock, conveniently on route to Queensland. It is just north of Tenterfield on the inland route to Brisbane. It is basic camping amongst tall trees unless you bring your own caravan or camper trailer. We were greeted by bird calls and feeding wallabies. Wood is supplied for camp fires in designated fireplaces,... More

Fantastic destination and absolute worth the walk. Go up the long way and come back via the Steep Rock Face, it's the best! Loved the views and the tracks are maintained very well. Interpretive signs are great and the view from the top is the best reward.

The climb up the rock (the steep path) was a workout on the legs. was a great view at the top and well worth it. definitely recommend it for walkers.
