Finding Balancing Rock

Located in the Granite Belt region of Queensland and near the New South Wales border, Girraween National Park is a Giants Playground.

With granite monoliths that seem to have been carefully placed by giants, this park is home to some of the most spectacular views and features in all of Australia.

This includes Balancing Rock, precariously balancing atop the summit of the “First Pyramid” and is easily accessible to visitors of all ages via a short hiking trail from the day-use picnic area.
