Dr Roberts Waterhole Track is a 1.2km, grade 2 Return hike located in Girraween National Park Queensland. The hike should take approximately 30 mins to complete.

Summary

The gently sloping track to Dr Roberts Waterhole in Girraween National Park starts from Dr Roberts carpark, four kilometres east of the information centre. Gaze at reflections in the still waters of Bald Rock Creek; or admire wildflowers including ground orchids, banksias, conesticks, geebungs and crinkle bushes prominent in spring, or the many colourful bird species living in among them.

About the region

Girraween National Park is an area of the Granite Belt in the Darling Downs region of Queensland, Australia reserved as a national park. Girraween is known for its spectacular flowers, dramatic landscapes and unique wildlife. Bushwalking and rock climbing are the most popular activities in the park.

The park is situated 40 km south of Stanthorpe. The southern boundary of the park is the state border between Queensland and New South Wales. It is a twin park with Bald Rock National Park, which lies across the border in New South Wales, and features Bald Rock, the second-largest monolith (after Uluru) on the continent. Curiously, South Bald Rock and West Bald Rock lie in Girraween National Park in Queensland, not in Bald Rock National Park in New South Wales.
