55mins from Stanthorpe (via Tenterfield), stands Australia's largest exposed granite rock and second largest rock in Australia to Uluru (Ayers Rock). Two marked walking tracks lead to the summit where a visitors book records successful climbs. Extensive 360° views from the top take in the granite landscape of Girraween National Park to the west and the volcanic plugs of the Tweed Valley to the east. The picnic area and short term camping ground are just a short walk from the base of the rock. Bald Rock is 1277m above sea level, and is 750m long by 500m wide.
Today I came back from Bald Rock after spending 2 nights in freezing -6 degrees celcius! Cold!! Lovely dinners, warm fires and best friends made it all better though- and the HUGE rock just waiting to be scampered and explored all over!! This morning my mother, my best friend, Kel, and I climbed Bald Rock at 5:30am to watch the sunrise! And was it worth the freezing winds and early morning?? HELL YES! It was GORGEOUS! I will post more pictures of the sunrise later.
You Ozzies out there, I definitely recommend it!
