Facilities and activities
On the Queensland–New South Wales border, 260 km south-west of Brisbane, halfway between Stanthorpe and Tenterfield.
Girraween, meaning 'place of flowers', is a park of massive granite outcrops, large angular tors, and precariously balanced boulders. Spectacular wildflower displays splash colour among the granite in spring.
