We are definitely coming back to this wonderful spot! You can camp under the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest granite rock!
Sites at Bald Rock Campground have plenty of vegetation and privacy, we loved the granite surrounds.
Bald Rock was neutral ground, trade route and a meeting place for three of the Aboriginal nations of the area: the Jukambal, Bundgalung and Kamilleroi.
The campground would be a wonderful location for groups. There is a sheltered area, but each site had picnic tables – the site we stopped at had a huge one.
The firepits were very functional with BBQ plates that rotated.
The campground is very close to Bald Rock itself, and other walks.
Some of the sites are allocated for caravans.
The pit toilets were clean when we were there. Spotless and well maintained!
Firewood was also supplied!
A swamp wallaby…
…and kookaburra said hi.
Plus it is budget priced… at only $24 per night, for two people.
Remember to book ahead. They request online bookings, and although there was some mobile coverage in the camping area, much of the National Park is out of mobile range.
There is a vehicle entry fee of $8 per vehicle per day. The park uses a self-registration fee collection system. You’ll need the correct change. We bought an annual NSW National Parks pass.
The camping area is 5 km from Mount Lindesay road, on the Oracles Way between – 27 km south of Stanthorpe and 29 km north east of Tenterfield.
Check the site out yourself:
If you are after more creature comforts and facilities, there is bush camping at Aloomba Lavender Farm, 33 km north of the National Park campground, and north east of Stanthorpe. You’ll see the signs on route along Mount Lindesay Road.
