Nestled in shady eucalypt forest, settle back and watch eastern grey kangaroos and red-necked wallabies grazing nearby and listen to melodious birdsong of currawongs, kookaburras and magpies.

Explore some of the walking tracks that start from the camping area—remember to take your binoculars! Spend a happy couple of hours on The Junction track or head off on the Bald Rock Creek circuit for an hour. Stroll to the Bald Rock Creek day-use area and Girraween Visitor Centre and the start of Girraween's northern walking tracks.

In the evening relax around the BBQ under a starry night sky and listen for brushtail possums, echidnas and bandicoots.
