You might have heard of the famous movie where girls go missing in the rocks...well this granite boulder formation of caves and overhangs was the haunt of the famous New England Bushranger Thunderbolt. It is a pity that local New England towns have not put...More

Think of the majesty of Girraween NP’s Pyramid Rock hike, but now imagine it compressed into 30 to 60 minutes of relaxing exploration through natural bushland and boulders. If you’re adventurous, you can take a few squeezes through cracked granite boulders with the kids. Try...More

Short drive off the highway, about 7 kms. Last part is on gravel road, but OK for normal cars. Large bolder formation that you can explore with a great viewing platform on top. Not suitable for disabled, as the last part is via steep stairs....More

Wear appropriate footwear. The rocks are slippery when wet. I recommend taking a picnic lunch, and food for a BBQ
