So many walks/hikes to do in Namadgi National Park, but this seems to be the most popular. The car park for this walk was 3 km down an unsealed road with signposts saying that it was only suitable for a 4WD. The solution was to walk the road to get to the car park, which added another 6km (return) to... More

Other people can tell you how to get there, but this is one of the iconic walks just inside Namadgi National Park. The views are spectacular.

the sign at the start of the walk says it is a 30 minute one way walk. what it doesn't tell you is the number of steps you will be using. as the steps can be uneven, it may be difficult for some to make it all the way. if going up is bad, coming back down was in my... More

As above, a great place for a day trip, bush walk and picnic. Has BBQ facilities and toilets. Easy drive from Canberra to see 'roos and birdlife. Camping is permitted but fees apply - fires allowed

Great little track - my 7 and 9 year old made it to the top just fine. And wow is it worth it, spectacular views at the top. It is quite steep in places and some of the steps are large. A couple of fallen trees cross the path but we just climbed over them.

Just randomly driving along and came across a sign saying Booroomba Rocks. Why not I said and am certainly glad I did. I stumbled upon this short 30 minute walk to literally the most amazing view in the ACT. Walking slightly up hill past some amazingly gigantic rocks, and through astounding bush land, to come across this breath taking view... More

Nice drive to get there, largely uphill walk. Impressively large rocks on the way up. The view over Canberra from the top is fabulous. The cliffs are high - hold onto little kids!

Pleasant walk, beautiful sub-alpine bushland on the drive in and brilliant clifftop views at the end. Highly recommended except if you have exuberant or disobedient youngsters. The last bit of the road is dirt so take care driving plus the walk is uphill so expect to perspire or even sweat - take water.

It was a surprisingly challenging walk. An uphill slope through bush until you reach the car park at the foot of the Rocks. The climb up is steep but has a good path. There are shaded opportunities to catch your breath but take plenty of water. With varying levels of fitness and age (some Cubs were only 9), we all... More

Booroomba Rocks is a granite climbing area in Namadgi National Park, in the Australian Capital Territory, particularly noted for its slab climbing. The rocks are divided into several areas, the most prominent being North Buttress, Middle Rocks, and South Buttress. The area was first approached from Booroomba Station. However, it was not until Honeysuckle Creek Tracking Station, and the associated... More
