Coonabarabran Things to Do: 30 reviews and 68 photos

  A truly grand panorama of Grand High Tops
by iandsmith

Though it's commonly known as the Split Rock walk, the full title given to it these days is the Belougery Split Rock Circuit which, to my way of thinking, is a little bit of a misnomer.
What you actually do is climb Split Rock but one of the things you see when you're up there is Belougery Spire.
Here, it is the one on the left. Other notable features are the Breadknife (centre in shade) and Crater Bluff.
Access to those is via another popular walk that takes around five hours return and is also steep but without any chain-grabbing areas.
Prisoners were actually used to make a lovely brick path that covers a lot of the walk to the Grand High Tops which is where the Breadknife is.
