Have been to Girraween on several occasions but always in Spring. Well marked walks through granite landscape principally along river banks although little water flow at this time of year. Fine views towards The Junction. Take water if hot as quite exposed to sun.

Girraween is a great national park less than 3 hours from Brisbane. We stayed in Bald Rock Creek camping ground. The facilities were very clean, and the hot shower was magnificent after a day of walking the trails and taking in the flora and fauna....More

The locals are great to have close, that's the kangaroos and birds. Could spend more time here. Great picnic areas in the day area. A must to go back.

The hot water in the showers are set on a 3 minute timer then cut out. There is no hot water in the wash up area, just cold. Hope this helps.
