Girraween National Park

National Park in Girraween National Park

A 16km drive east of Ballandean, Girraween National Park is home to some astonishing granite boulders, pristine forests and brilliant blooms of springtime wild flowers (Girraween means 'place of flowers'), all of which make a marvellous setting for a stroll. Wildlife is abundant and there are numerous marked trails (from 1.2km to 11km return) to take you around and to the top of some of the surreal granite outcrops.

Short walks include the 1.6km return walk to the Granite Arch and a 3.6km return scramble up the Pyramid (1080m). The granddaddy of Girraween walks is the 11km return trek to the top of Mt Norman (1267m).
