Description

Castle Rock gives breathtaking panoramic views over Girraween National Park and is well worth the walk. The track varies from gentle to moderate gradients until the steep climb over exposed granite rocks to the summit. Black cypress, stringybarks and orange gums grow on the rocky ridges and woodlands while yellow box and brown gums provide shade and good birdwatching. Warning: the summit has steep cliffs and potentially slippery surfaces. Keep to the track and supervise children closely.
