Meaning ‘place of flowers’, Girraween is a park of massive granite outcrops, large angular tors, and precariously balanced boulders. Spectacular wildflower displays splash colour among the granite in spring. Girraween has 17km of walking tracks, ranging from a 280m stroll beside Bald Rock Creek to an 11km return walk to Mount Norman.
For a cool dip head to The Junction where you’ll find creeks and waterholes waiting for you to jump in.
Popular walks are the Granite Arch, Castle Rock for 360-degree views and the iconic Pyramid. Most walks start near the visitor information centre and day-use area—except where indicated. Main tracks are well defined but expect rocky sections and steep upper slopes.
