Starting from the Bald Rock Creek day-use area this round trip offers some superb birdwatching and wildlife-spotting opportunities. In spring enjoy colourful wildflower displays and during the warmer months, cool off in the permanent waterhole. Stop to take a break at the lookout, gaze at the reflections on the water's surface, and soak up the impressive views across to The Pyramid.

Watch cormorants and wood ducks resting on boulders in the creek, and look in the understorey for superb fairy-wrens, thornbills and bowerbirds. If are lucky, you’ll catch glimpse of Girraween's unique Bell's turtle basking beside the creek.
