Bald Rock camping area
To get to Bald Rock, follow the Mt Lindesay Rd north about 30 km from Tenterfield, then take the park access road to the end. From the camping area you can take the short but strenuous Bungoona Walk (3 km, 2–3 hr) to the summit of Bald Rock; alternatively, there are a couple of other walks of varying difficulty that lead through diverse vegetation to viewing sites for Bald Rock and the surrounding granite landscape. The 14 campsites are sheltered and well shaded here. A walk up to Bald Rock at sunrise or sunset will be rewarded with fantastic views, and the changing colours of the rock in the early and late light offer many opportunities for the keen photographer. Bring your own drinking water, or boil/treat the creek water available. Some firewood supplied, but best to bring your own.

This campsite is located in Bald Rock National Park
Distracted by the beauty of Uluru in the NT, many Australians are unaware of its equally impressive cousin, Bald Rock, 27 km north of Tenterfield. At 750 m long, 500 m wide and 200 m high, the largest granite rock in the country is a mind-blowing tableau of stone arches, canyons and magnificent views.
