Bald Rock Summit via Rockface Walk
Starting from the Bald Rock Picnic Area at the end of Bald Rock Access Road, Boonoo Boonoo, this walk takes you to the summit of Bald Rock and back via the Rockface Walk. This moderately challenging walk climbs steeply to the summit of Bald Rock, the largest granite monolith in Australia, located in Bald Rock National Park. Bald Rock's water-streaked dome is about 260m high and rises almost 1300m above sea level, providing spectacular views, especially at sunrise and sunset. The walk initially follows a wide, wheelchair-accessible sealed path to the base of Bald Rock, crossing a footbridge and passing through dense forest. After a steep scramble up Bald Rock's exposed rock face, the walk joins the Bungoona Walk and crosses the saddle to the summit, which offers panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. The Rockface Walk can be quite slippery in wet weather, but walkers can take the Bungoona Walk as an alternate route, which is slightly easier. Both walks can be combined to form a loop, which is best done anti-clockwise. This walk consists of wide and narrow walking trails and sealed paths, with uneven natural surfaces, bitumen surfaces, gravel surfaces, rock scrambling sections, off-track sections, steep hills and steps. Suitable for moderate fitness levels. Let us begin by acknowledging the Jukembal people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
