The Junction Track is a 5.2km, grade 3 Return hike located in Girraween National Park Queensland. The hike should take approximately 2hrs to complete.

Summary

The Junction track is an easy walk downstream from the Bald Rock Creek day-use area along the northern bank of Bald Rock Creek to its junction with Ramsay Creek. In dry seasons, these creeks may not run. Enjoy colourful track-side wildflowers in spring – this track is a must for wildflower lovers. Flowering shrubs fringing the creek provide nectar for honeyeaters and parrots. Take the time to look in rock pools and to watch superb wrens, red-browed firetails and thornbills moving through creek bank thickets seeking insects.

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.
