Note: The road to Booroomba Rocks Carpark is currently closed to all vehicles. To walk to Booroomba Rocks you will need to park at the Honeysuckle campground and follow the Australian Alps Walking Track. The trail begins to the right of the BBQ shelter. This is now a 10.5km return walk.

Booroomba Rocks in Namadgi National Park offers stunning views of Canberra and across the Brindabella Ranges. Wander through tall forests and take the walking track up a short steep incline to experience panoramic vistas from the top of massive granite cliffs.

If you’re feeling adventurous, take the 10.5-kilometre return trip from the Honeysuckle Campground. You'll need to search for the Australian Alps Walking Trailhead closest to the campground, but this walk in the Australian bush is also well worth the effort.

Visit the Namadgi National Park Visitors Centre for the latest track conditions, weather updates, local information and detailed maps before embarking on any bushwalk. Hot and cold drinks and snacks are also available.
