Liam Hardy is our August Explorer of the Month. He’s been documenting the ethereal delight of Bald Rock National Park through his lens for months and he’s finally ready to share what he’s seen. Go on, lose yourself for a minute.
Bald Rock National Park is located on the New South Wales/Queensland border, 43 kilometres from the small town of Stanthorpe, and it’s home to one of Australia’s geological wonders. I’d remained unaware of its existence until early 2017 when I moved to Brisbane from Coffs Harbour, and boy am I glad I know about it now.
Bald Rock is the largest granite monolith in Australia — possibly in the southern hemisphere — and its surrounding areas are of high importance to the local Aboriginal people.
