Be inspired: Camp amongst a ‘Flower and garden’ show that outshines all others at Girraween

‘It’s bloomin marvellous’, as Australian gardening guru, Peter Cundal, would say. You don’t need to fly to the UK for the Chelsea Flower Show or trek to Melbourne for the International Flower Show because, when it comes to wildflowers and rock landscaping, Girraween National Park outclasses them all.

Be inspired: ‘Girraween Vacation’—a family camping adventure in a ‘nature park’

If an escape from the family school day routine appeals (like, really appeals!) but the idea of a family road trip and camping holiday conjures up images of the Griswolds on vacation, leaving you in a cold sweat, we have a solution! Photo credit: Maxime Coquard © Queensland Government

Girraween, meaning ‘place of flowers’, is a park of massive granite outcrops, large angular tors, and precariously balanced boulders. Spectacular wildflower displays splash colour among the granite in spring.

Location

On the Queensland–New South Wales border, 260km south-west of Brisbane, halfway between Stanthorpe and Tenterfield.
