Easy Granite Belt Walk
Explore an underground creek set beneath a gigantic wave shaped rock in the midst of Girraween National Park.

'Wave Rock'

The walk is very achievable for most levels of fitness along a well signed and easy path through tea trees and other Australian bush. Massive boulders – born from a cataclysmic volcanic explosion millions of years before, form the landscape creating natures very own Sculpture Park.

After about 50-70 metres from the car park, take the left fork. The other will take you on a short walk to Dr Roberts Waterhole, a peaceful oasis within the Granite Belt bush.

Back along to the junction, you meander along the well-provided path until you get to the finale of the Wave Rock… the name is evident from its appearance.

Scramble up on the rocks and you can view the underground creek and peep through the boulders. It is possible to get to the top of the rocks by following the gully and boulders to find easier access to the top. You will be rewarded with great views across the Granite Belt landscape.

Underground Creek is a good 2-hour return walk of about 6 km. Take the sign for Dr Roberts Waterhole from Pyramids Road to park. Visit the National Park centre a short drive away (website link) and consider other walks such as Castle Rock (read more). The walks are just 45 minute' drive from Stanthorpe off the New England highway.
