Climbing to the Summit of Bald Rock – Northern NSW

A vey pleasant climb to the top of Bald Rock in the Bald Rock National Park. The Bald Rock Summit walking track takes you up to the largest granite rock in Australia, with scenic views out across Bald Rock National Park.

We went up the Easier Route ( which is basically walking up a well maintained path along the side on the Rock), and then returned down the rock face.

Along the easier path, you’ll pass through woodland areas of eucalyptus, mountain gum and New England blackbutt and incredible granite rock formations which you actually walk through.

The approach to the summit could pose a problem for those with a fear of heights.

There are white markings painted on the Rock to indicate the best way to make it to the top.

The view’s are amazing on top, and showcase large round boulder’s that look as though they could just roll off at any moment. Steven tried to give one a shove

The walk down the cliff face is steep but easy to do if you are careful, saw a couple going down on their backsides. Probably best not to go this way down after rain.

This park is located near Tenterfield Northern NSW. From Tenterfield: Take the Mount Lindesay Road for 25km along a sealed road. Turn into the Bald Rock Access Road (also sealed) for 5km before reaching the Bald Rock picnic area.
