  • Had a good time doing several of the walks,not a great information centre but staff very helpful. Plenty of bbq’s at the day use area and swimming hole close by. Well worth the drive.  more »

  • Girraween is an awesome national park just outside Stanthorpe, near the wineries of Ballendean. It has to be one of the best national park walks anywhere, especially the climbs up the pyramid and cast...  more »

  • Great clean camping, fantastic walks to some amazing places in this park. I have been coming here for 50 years and never tire of it. Always bring some cold weather clothes even in mid summer, it often turns cold.
  • A fantastic park. Great maintenance, amenities and signage by the Parks and Wildlife service. Very hard to get lost. Being used to NSW sandstone geology parks I found this granite wonderland quite spectacular! Make sure you swing by and taste some great wine at Pyramid Wines Estate on the way home.
  • So glad that we finally got to discover this area. Such a variety of walks for all fitness levels. I would certainly recommend good non-slip walking shoes for Pyramid mountain. Views are worth the walk to the top.
  • Incredible geographic area. Plenty to see and learn. Many different walks to do and fitness levels. Camping areas are awesome too.
  • Good range of walks. Would definitely recommend doing the pyramid.
