If time is limited, or if you prefer an easy stroll, this circuit track is ideal. Cross bald Rock Creek and wind through blackbutt and stringybark forest to Girraween's very own natural stone archway.

Getting there:

Girraween NP is situated approximately 260km by road south-west of Brisbane. To reach the park, turn off the New England Highway 26km south of Stanthorpe or 30km north of Tenterfield onto Pyramids Road. The winding bitumen road continues a further 9km east through the Wyberba Valley to the park's Information Centre and day use picnic area.

An alternative road from Stanthorpe to Girraween via Eukey and Storm King Dam has some gravel sections.


Girraween National Park

Route/Trail notes:

Follow the signposted track starting from the day use and picnic area. The track crosses over the creek on a concrete bridge along the same track as The Pyramid track. From here, track left as signposted and down through the arch and eventually back to the original track at the concrete bridge.



Other References/Comments:

With so many bushwalking options in the park, why not take advantage of the excellent camping facilities at Bald Rock Creek or Castle Rock.


Detoured to the Arch after descending from the Pyramid Rock. Nice walk!

The signage is pretty vague but there's so much natural beauty here it's worth muddling through. We were passing through late in the day so we only did this quick easy Granite Arch circuit but it was great, waterholes and rock formations abound.

Easy to combine this on the way back from The Pyramid, as it was all downhill!
This was our last walk over a two week road trip with the grandchildren out from the Sunshine Coast to Dubbo and back. Final tally was 26 walks covering 70km. Wow.

After making our way to the top of The Pyramid, we decided to detour along this track on our way back to the car.
The rock formations are amazing and a nice easy walk for kids.

After feeling stressed on the slopes of The Pyramid, I greatly enjoyed the security of being on lower ground and checking out the cool Granite Arch.

Incredible rock formations. Was surprised how the rocks stay in the same place. Great photo opportunities.
