Walk

Starting from the car park on Cunningham Highway(National Highway 15), Tregony, this walk takes you to the Bare Rock Lookout and back, visiting the Mount Cordeaux Lookout along the way. As you’re climbing up through the subtropical eucalypt rainforest, observe the interchanging flora and environment while listening to the tunes of lyrebirds. Expect to see captivating views over the Tarome countryside and beyond from the Mount Cordeaux Lookout. As you’re taking in the views, enjoy a snack or a coffee to refill your energy for the Bare Rock climb. The ridgeline between Cordeaux and Bare Rock can make you feel like you're in Middle-earth, on your way to destroy the ring. Bare Rock welcomes you with rewarding views over Lake Moogerah and Brisbane, along with surreal views of the Scenic Rim. Check the forecast beforehand to make sure you’re not there on a foggy day, thus miss all the views. The viewpoints can be very windy, so don’t forget to wear layers of clothing. Schedule the walk real early on a weekend to avoid traffic and see the sun rise. A weekday may be quieter, but that means you’ll need to deal with the noise coming from trucks air braking down the road. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
