Egg Rock is also located in the Purlingbrook National Park.

I have never walked to it, but you can, there are plenty of walks to choose from.
The landscape in this area is a remnant of the northern side of a once huge shield volcano about 23 million years ago. The volcano was built up of highly mobile basalt lavas, and was about 80 km across and is responsible for the sheer cliffs of Springbrook plateau and the unusual shaped formations you will see in the area.

Egg Rock is one of them, so if coming from the Gold Coast, it will be located on the RH side of the road on the way to Natural Arch.

Also look out for waterfalls tumbling over the large cliffs, we saw three!
