National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) Northern Inland Branch Director, Rob Smith, said Bald Rock National Park has been attracting visitors to the region for decades.

'The magnificent granite dome and surrounding park are spectacular all year and it’s fantastic to finally be able to celebrate this historic occasion with the community following delays due to COVID.

'The first event is a guided walk at 2 pm. Join rangers as they share their passion for the history, animals and plants of Bald Rock National Park,' he said.

There will be a choice of walks to suit all abilities. One walk will tackle the steep walk to the iconic Bald Rock summit, while the other will follow the gentler Bungoona walking track at the base of Bald Rock. Return to Bald Rock picnic area to celebrate with a light afternoon snack of billy tea and
anniversary cake.

'Later in the year you can also join us for an anniversary bike ride through the park on 15 October,' said Mr Smith.

The park is looking breathtaking so a fully-charged camera is a definite must, along with your sturdy walking shoes.
