and Bald Rock National Park
are located in southern Queensland and Northern New South
Wales respectively. These parks neigbour each other and are named differently as they lie in different states. The landscapes here are dissected by gullies with open eucalypt forest cover,
rock-strewn slopes, ridges, and flats. Steep sided granite
hills, boulders, precariously balanced rocks, and expansive granite outcrops are the main features of these parks.
Situated in the northern extremity of the New England uplands, with an average elevation of 900m, winters
are cold reaching a minimum of -8°. Summer days are warm (25° to 30°) with cool nights.
Girraween's granite habitat is unique to Queensland. The flora and fauna resemble more southern types, with some plants and animals having their sole Queensland distribution in Girraween.
