This walking and wellbeing short break to the rainforests of Main Range and Girraween National Park in South East Queensland's Granite Belt, will leave you relaxed and connected to nature. Walks include creek explorations, exhilarating ascents of the local peaks, and shorter strolls through the sub-tropical rainforest in World Heritage listed areas. We travel to Main Range National Park for rainforest and lookout walks with the option to climb Mt Cordeaux. Straddling the Great Dividing Range, this park, is part of the Scenic Rim arc of mountains. South of Stanthorpe, we spend three nights in the comfortable and spacious accommodation of Girraween Environmental Lodge. Enjoy cool nights, a spa and pool, and abundant wildlife around the lodge. Meaning “Place of Flowers”, nearby Girraween National Park is famous for its granite domes, improbable balancing boulders, and exquisitely water-worn creek forms. Walks lead us to fascinating underground creeks, magnificent granite outcrops, and lookouts over the eucalypt forests and heathlands. Each day, we will offer a selection of popular and lesser-known walks with options to hike as much or as little as you prefer. During our stay, we enhance our connection to body, mind, and nature, with two optional yoga classes and a local flora expert sharing their love of the area and teaching us about local bush foods. Our final walk is to the largest exposed granite monolith in Australia, at Bald Rock National Park with spectacular views and quiet picnic spots.
