Bare Rock track and Morgan's Walk (Main Range National Park)

This was such an enjoyable walk! The lush green of the rain forest was beautiful. The panoramic views from Bare Rock are excellent. And a little birdsong here and there was a treat for the ears.

We went on quite a windy day, so it was even more cold and windy at Bare Rock. But we were still able to enjoy lunch and a hot drink on the leeward side. If you feel the cold, be sure to have a good warm layer and a wind breaker of some type.

The terrain was easy to manage. There are exposed edges/cliffs at Bare Rock, so a little care is of course necessary.

We stopped at Mt Cordeaux on the way to Bare Rock. Mt Cordeaux also has great views, but Bare Rock's are definitely a step up, and well worth the extra enjoyable walking distance.

We also added Morgan's Walk on the return as it is such a short detour. It was worth adding, even if only for the more extended view of the range stretching north. Again, there are exposed edges/cliffs (with a very steep and long drop), so take the necessary care.

Note also that the carpark can be very busy. At 10:30am, I had to park down the road a bit on the somewhat narrow shoulder.

This is a walk that I will be recommending to friends and family. Thoroughly enjoyable.

This was quite a nice walk. And the views from Mt Cordeaux were great. We stopped at Mt Cordeaux on the way to Bare Rock/Morgan's Walk, which is a highly recommended extension if you have the time to do so.
