Girraween is an awesome national park just outside Stanthorpe, near the wineries of Ballendean. It has to be one of the best national park walks anywhere, especially the climbs up the pyramid and castle rock.

Very steep top half of climb. Didn't make it to the very top, as it started to sprinkle. Previously warned not to climb in the wet and realised why!

We enjoyed our visit and walk to the Arch. The paths are well maintained. Springtime and the flowers are out. You can camp at the camping grounds or just visit for the day.

Have been to Girraween on several occasions but always in Spring. Well marked walks through granite landscape principally along river banks although little water flow at this time of year. Fine views towards The Junction. Take water if hot as quite exposed to sun.

Girraween National Park is wonderful. The car parks, picnic areas, and walking tracks are supberbly maintained. We were day trippers, so didn't experience the camping areas.

The hot water in the showers are set on a 3 minute timer then cut out. There is no hot water in the wash up area, just cold. Hope this helps.
