A must for wildflower lovers and birdwatchers alike, the Junction is an easy walk along the bank of Bald Rock Creek, with its cool, dark waters, flowering shrubs and diverse wildlife.
Take a rest, dip your toes or plunge into one of the many rock pools that line The Junction track. If you look carefully you may even spot the Superb Fairy-Wrens and Honeyeaters moving through the thicket in search of their next meal.
While the creek may not run during the Summer, the vibrant wildlife and stunning landscape make this walk more than worthwhile!
With granite boulders dotting the landscape, there are plenty of opportunities to see geology in the making. Witness first-hand how wind and water have formed this curious landscape.
The Junction Track is one of the northern walks in Girraween National Park – located near the Queensland–New South Wales border, 260 km by road south-west of Brisbane.
It is a 5.2 km long return walk that takes around 2 hours to complete (excluding the countless stops to take in the breathtaking scenery!)
The trail begins at the Bald Rock Creek day-use area, and winds through a variety of landscapes, from green Eucalypt forests, to open heathland and across bare granite.
As you parallel the creek and traverse the smooth granite, you will find yourself at the spectacular river junction where you can witness a geological formation found nowhere else!
