Information

8km from east of Warialda off the Gwydir Highway is the turn off to Cranky Rock, a jumble of giant boulders heaped in the most fantastic positions by a past volcanic upheaval, features excellent picnic facilities, suspension bridge, birdlife and wildlife sanctuary and, a viewing platform. Free barbecues, camping area, power available, kiosk and bush shower facility. Walking trails suit either an easy stroll or a more challenging walk for the adventurous hiker. Visitors can go fossicking along the creek. Signs of aboriginal life can be seen within the nature reserve amongst the many plant life.

Fees for camping are payable to onsite caretakers. Pensioners discount available.

The name Cranky Rock was derived from an old legend which said that an old ‘Cranky Chinaman’ jumped to his death from the highest point of the balancing rocks after being accused of some wrong doing.
