  • Not far from Ballandean - this NP is a must for visitors to the Granite Belt. We walked the Pyramids walk for the 4th time in about 10 years and we still enjoy it. However you need shoes with really g...  more »
  • What a great park to do some easy to rather difficult hikes. The Pyramid was amazing and the views at the top were absolutely spectacular. I can't wait to get back there!  more »
  • The walk from the Tourist Information Centre up to the Pyramids was strenuous but well worth the effort - the drive into the Park did not take long from beautiful Ballandean. Some chains for hikers to...  more »

  • Worth a visit for the walks. Granite arch walk is suitable for young kids. The pyramid track is well looked after but the last bit is not recommended for young children as it is up a steep rock face. Definitely worth the effort to the top though for the view and the balancing boulders.
  • What a beautiful serene place to visit. The huge boulders make you feel your on another planet. Loved it and happy I lived it.
  • Stayed for the week in a single room lodge in August. Very spacious with all amenities. Wood fireplace, BBQ and spa bath! Best local walks with great views and star gazing at night.
  • Today is my first day to visit this place. And this place is worth driving from Brisbane 😅... Me and my group enjoy the weather, the view, and also food that we bring from home..You can have BBQ here since you can find some BBQ facilities. Public toilet also available here.. This park provide some routes for hiking depending on your time and energy...So, choose it wisely and you can enjoy the view.. I really love the rock formations.. However, I miss the water tap for drinking water..I hope this park will be able to provide the facility in the future.
  • Can't wait to get back there. Really well setup and signed. The Pyramid was epic!
