My Blog:
I found this a really easy climb, but then ten years ago I was a lot younger and fitter! The scramble up the face is great fun, but was scorching hot. The density of the surrounding bushland makes you wonder how the first pioneers ever got through?

It is twelve years since I was here last and now it was time to camp at the base and take my grandchildren to the top to witness a fantastic sunset.
Short Description:
Bald Rock is the largest granite monolith in Australia, situated near the Queensland - New South Wales Border just north of Tenterfield. The relatively short walk provides great views of surrounding Bald Rock National Park and neighbouring Girraween National Park.
Getting There:
From Tenterfield take the Mount Lindesay Road north and then turn left into Bald Rock Access Road and follow this for 5km to the car park.
Bald Rock Summit Walking Track
Route/Trail Notes:
From the car park, take the walk to Bald Rock. After a couple hundred meters you come to a Y, take the right (straight); this is the hardest way up. Keep following the track until you come out of the bush and meet the bottom of Bald Rock.
From here, there are white discs marking the direction upwards. As usual, follow the standard white markings up.
National Park entry fee applies (2017 = $8 per vehicle/day). There is a self registration area for parking and camping. The camp grounds are just behind the car park.
Other References/Comments:
Base yourself at Bald Rock Camp Ground and take advantage of a spectacular sunrise or sunset from the top.
