The fabulously dramatic Girraween National Park sits in the border of NSW and Queensland in the Granite Belt region of Queensland. Surrounded by fruit growers and wine makers, Girraween is like stepping back in time to a Queensland before development. Sweeping views of National Park land are unspoiled by townships or even buildings or farming land. You really do feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere.
There are a hand-full of day walks from easy to difficult and as steep and scary as it looks, climbing the Pyramid is a must-do! You can find information about camping at Girraween National Park at the QPWS website here. The campsite is in a great position, infact it is approx 300m from where the photos above and below were taken! Amazing right. We haven’t YET camped here ourselves (it’s on the list) however we think it will soon be included in our top National Park campsites in Queensland (we only include campsites that we can personally vouch for).
Views from mid-way up the Pyramid of The Sphinx and Turtle rock formations (above) and below a shot displaying the angle of the granite rocks you are climbing up! If you’re looking for somewhere a little more luxurious stay nearby, check out the following budget airbnb offerings:
