The most significant feature in “Bald Rock” National Park is the climbing of “Bald Rock” itself. It is the largest Granite Rock in Australia and people climb it, like “Ayres Rock” in years gone by. It was established some 220 Million years ago. “Bald Rock” is 500 Metres wide, 750 Metres long and is an astounding 200 Metres above the surrounding environment.
Anyone can climb “Bald Rock”. One might like to try the more gentler approach going on the “Bungoona Walking Track” on the Eastern side of the Rock. It meanders through the forest passing through Caves, Granite Boulder Formations, Arches, Moss, Orchids and Ferns. A beautiful walk away from the possible stresses/demands on everyday life.
Or for the more energetic, one could walk up the steep face of Bald Rock. This is the shorter of the two options. It is a most enjoyable walk, taking in the most spectacular scenery and marvelling at the different sections of the rock formations and the small rock pools in different sections of the Rock.
Upon finishing your successful climb, there are gas barbecues and Picnic Tables in the Picnic Area, where everyone can chill out.
It has been said before, that “Bald Rock” is the most popular Tourist destination that people come to Tenterfield for.
