Bald Rock National Park

National Park in Tenterfield

This gorgeous eucalyptus, wattle and blackbutt forest straddles the NSW–Queensland border about 35km northeast of Tenterfield. Its eponymous feature is Australia's largest granite monolith, a 200m x 750m x 500m behemoth that looks like a stripy little Uluru. There are lovely walks in the area (including two routes up the rock for great views), plus picnic sites and a camping area (adult/child $12/6) near the base. Native mammals (quolls, swamp wallabies and grey kangaroos) and birdsong are highlights.
