We went in Spring when the bush was full of many different varieties of wildflowers. The temperature was ideal for walking. The walk up the Pyramid rock is a little challenging but the view is definitely worth it. I agree do not attempt if wet as it would be slippery and dangerous. We also walked up Castle Rock, with the same advice against attempting this in the wet. The walk to The Sphinx and Turtle Rock is also nice. We did all of these walks in one day. Bring your own packed lunch and water as there are no places to buy food nearby. There is a little chocolate and coffee shop on the road to Ballandean but we did not stop there. We saw a red belly black snake up very close, so just take the usual precautions for snakes.

What a wonderful place. So make walks for any fitness level, the river running over the big granite rocks makes a beautiful spot to sit and watch the birds and just relax. The walk up to the big pyramid rock is tough though and a bit scary. But worth the view at the top. Fitness level for that one needs to be good. Otherwise nice picnic areas, plenty of shade.

So peaceful and so much to see. Hidden waterfalls, loads of birds and flowers and hardly any other humans. Great facilities too

The various well -laid-out walking trails in Girraween National Park cater for all members of the family. For the fit there is the 1.6km walk to The Pyramids (a major granite outcrop) that affords a magnificent view of the whole area. Family members will enjoy the easy walk to The Junction (some 2.6km from the day park area) where there are numerous water holes of varying depths surrounded by granite outcrops just made for sunbathing. The many wilflowers and other attractions, including Granite Arch, make it the ideal day or camping destination. The area has many well-maintained gas barbecues and covered eating areas. Do yourself a favour and visit soon.
