Bald Rock National Park

Bald RockBald Rock is the largest exposed granite rock in the Southern Hemisphere. Conquer the summit of Australia's largest granite monolith rising 260 metres above the surrounding bushland, Bald Rock is a massive granite dome 750 metres long and 500 metres wide. An invigorating climb via one of the two marked walking tracks is rewarded by expansive views across beautiful outcrop dotted landscape. For a gradual climb, take the Bungoona Walk where the flora and fauna can be more closely observed. The trail winds its way to the summit through many impressive granite boulder formations. A leisurely pace has its own rewards, pause to appreciate the forest and wildflowers. To climb the face of the rock, follow the white dotted trail from the end of this track to the summit (2.5 kilometres). On reaching the summit, a successful climb can be rewarded in the visitor's book and by experiencing the wind sculptured rocks on the ridge near the top you won't be disappointed! Access from Tenterfield's end is via the Mt Lindesay Road which is sealed.
