Located 7.4 kilometres from Quilpie on the Toompine Road rests a red rocky formation, aptly named Baldy Top Lookout. Part of the Grey Range, Baldy Top is one of the most elevated points in South West Queensland.

Explore caves and crevices, untouched by civilisation whilst traversing this magnificent boulder formation which was created naturally over millions of years.

A climb to the summit of Baldy Top is a relatively easy ten minute scramble. Although Baldy Top appears quite small in its surroundings, once atop this hill, one is amazed by the breathtaking panoramic landscapes that stretch as far as your imagination.

As ancient as time itself, Baldy Top offers visitors stunning sunsets whilst experiencing the serenity and solitude of the Outback.

Head west out of Quilpie then turn left on Toombine Road

How do you get to the start of the walk?

Just follow the dirt / gravel road ( bit rough unsure for smaller 2wd like hatchbacks to do it ) and this will lead directly to bottom of the mountain


See Quilpie tourism . Or just look for Toombine Rd on whereis. Small town in outback not many roads in and out.

Lots of gravel , few goat tracks leading up.

A must when travelling through Quilpie. Had plenty wet stuff earlier making for a rather "green" view this time.
