Border walk is a 13km, grade 3 circuit hike, located in the Bald Rock National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 5.5hrs to complete.
Beginning at the northern end of the Bald Rock picnic area, Border walk passes through creeks and swamp, rising above attractive woodlands.
When you reach the northern extent of the walk, take time to rest at the viewing site that offers a fine profile of Bald Rock.
If you walk quietly at dawn or dusk you may see grey kangaroos, red-necked wallabies and swamp wallabies. If you’re in the campground at night, and with a good torch, you might also see possums and gliders. In spring, boronia, banksia, grevillea and a profusion of other wildflowers brighten the woodlands of this granite country. The best time of year to visit would have to be late July, with golden wattle trees blooming.
