We climbed up the face of the rock, well it was great a few stops and we were at the summit and what a view it was. Absolutely stunning, you could see for miles with the hills in the background, well worth the climb. Mind you we took the gentler path back down at 2.5km, which was lovely as you... More

Enjoyed my stay here. So peaceful. Make sure you have the correct change. $8 for car park & $12 per person a night if you plan to stay. Fire pits were great with plenty of wood supplied 😁 The toilets were clean. The walk up to the summit was great. Would love to do it again when all the flowers... More

Great walk and stunning views. Thoroughly recommended. Just follow the white dots up the granite face to reach the summit. Your hard work will be well rewarded. Finish with a dip at boonoo boonoo falls.

Had a beautiful day to do this walk. Track was easy to do and the best result was reaching the top with views all around. We took the steep descent down because we could/

A must visit NP. This park provides two options for reaching the summit. An easy option gradual climb on a well constructed gravel path which includes some spectacular rock arches or a more difficult rock wall walk. Either way certainly worth the effort for incredible views and water stained coloured rock. Both routes involve walking and climbing on granite rock... More

This is apparently the biggest granite boulder in the Southern hemisphere and it certainly was spectacular. We arrived early in the morning and had the place to ourselves. Be very careful on the drive out as there are many wallabies by the road and we needed to stop a couple of times as the jump out in front of the... More

Bald Rock is a must see, it is quite spectacular. I walked up the back track which was easier than climbing up the face, then I walked down the face hanging onto my husbands arm, we zigzagged down the steep face. If I can do it anyone can.

Take the Bungoona bushwalking track around the back of Bald Rock then up to the face of the rock. This track passes through beautiful bushland. It's great exercise, with a gradual upward gradient and a few areas of steps. The track passes through enormous granite boulder formations such as The Arches, which tower above you. From the face of Bald... More

This is without a doubt one of the highlights of the region around Tenterfield. If you are fit and healthy definitly take the faster steep walk up to the rock. For those like us who are a little older and slower the 2.5 km walk is the best one. Also on this walk you get to see some wonderful features... More

Climbing Bald Rock is a unique and unforgettable experience. Physically it is strenuous, especially in the summer so remember to take water with you. Having said that, almost anyone can do this activity. We saw families with young children as well as elderly couples move around the rock with ease. So if you have concerns, then take plenty of water... More
