This is the park's main picnic ground. It is situated next to the Girraween National Park Visitor Information Centre. Bald Rock Creek is only a short, easy walk away and there are excellent views of The Pyramid and Castle Rock. Both of the park's camping grounds are within a short walking distance.
Bald Rock Creek day-use area has tables - some roofed, gas barbecues - use is free of charge, toilets and drinking water. Rubbish bins, however, are not provided. You will need to bring your own rubbish bags and take all recyclables and rubbish with you when you leave.
The area is semi-grassed with lots of trees for shade. There is also a large open space, near the Visitor Centre.
Swimming is allowed in Bald Rock Creek, but please don't dive or jump into the creek as the water flow varies and submerged rocks and logs are dangerous.
Some creatures - like Kookaburras, Currawongs, kangaroos and possums - are quite used to people and regularly venture into the picnic ground.
Bald Rock Creek day-use area is the starting point for many of the park's walking tracks. Remember to wear a hat, sunscreen, comfortable clothes and sturdy shoes with good grip if you intend to go walking. Choose walks that suit the capabilities of your entire group and keep to designated walking tracks. There are signs at every track entrance which indicate the distance, degree of difficulty, duration of walks and any necessary precautions.
