The original bushranger hideout for ‘Thunderbolt’ who roamed the New England Tableland.

Donnellys Castle is a granite rock formation that you can walk between, around and over. The massive boulders are just as spectacular as some of the rock formations in Girraween National Park. Donnelly’s Castle is a great alternative option for young adventurers and is pet-friendly.

This rock formation, which you will find a short drive out of Stanthorpe near Pozieres, was named after Ned Donnelly, an early settler of the area. Now a crown recreation reserve, the area is maintained with picnic tables and barbecues. The site offers boulders to scramble over and hidden passageways to explore, as well as spectacular views of the surrounding area from the 200 metre walk to the top.
