Bald Rock National Park

Route/Trail notes:

Take the main summit track to Bald Rock and once across the bridge take the left hand track. The Bungoona Walk takes a smoother approach, working its way up the gentler eastern side of Bald Rock, past the ‘cairn garden’ and then through the amazing Arches before meeting up with the main track that then crosses the saddle to the summit.


National Park entry fee applies (2023 = $8 per vehicle/day). Park entry fees and camping permits can only be purchased online from National Parks NSW. The campgrounds are just behind the car park.

Other References/Comments:

Base yourself at Bald Rock Campground and take advantage of a spectacular sunrise or sunset from the top of Bald Rock.


We have always climbed to the summit of Bald Rock via the main track and rock face, so to take the Bungoona Walk was an enjoyable alternative. Despite the campsite being full, we were the only ones to brave the cold and see the sunset from the summit.

Really enjoyed this walk with my family including our youngest who is 8. Some parental anxiety kicked in at the summit but the path was well marked and the views were amazing.

A scenic walk through large granite boulders saw two lyrebirds.

We took the quick route up then the more gentle walk back along the Bungoona track on the way back. Outstanding views. You wouldn't visit the park without going up the rock, right!

Awesome view along the top! Well worth the trek up the steep rock.
