Hike Summary

This 6.5km return walk climbs to the top of the granite dome, where you'll be rewarded with superb scenic views as far as Girraween National Park in Queensland. The walking track heads along the base of Bald Rock, taking in refreshing forests of mountain gum and granite swellings.
Boronias and banksias also sprinkle the trail as you pass geckos and skinks quietly sunning themselves in various rock crevices. It's not uncommon to find yourself accompanied by families of curious kangaroos either as you traverse through.
