Glen Rock Regional Park


Glen Rock Regional Park is a 6300ha property North of Cunningham's Gap in the Lockyer Valley. It is named after a rocky outcrop on the ridge above the campground.

The park is criss-crossed in fire trails, yet limited in marked bushwalks. However, these trails offer considerable opportunity for some off-track exploration and magnificent views.

Mount Machar walking track

This short walk starts from the camping area, crosses the creek bed and goes up the hill to provide panoramic views of the valley. The eucalyptus trees block some of the view, but you can catch the sun coming over the mountains from here.

The path is a clear, wide strip of mowed grass and is easy to follow.

Mt Philp

Mt Philp is located in GlenRock Regional Park and sits to the north of the ridge of Glen Rock.
There is no distinct track to the summit so you will have to navigate your way starting from the information shed opposite the day use area.
This climb can be steep in areas and will require some scrambling approaching the summit but you are rewarded with amazing views of Glen Rock and the ridge lines of the sorrounding area.
