This isn’t the super high quality, compact Grampians sandstone people know Australia for, but Whiterock is high quality for Queensland standards most definitely. The rock is very sloppered and hueco’d- with a lot of people saying it is most similar to Font in style as well as stone. Many classics litter the areas with a lot of them having mantel cruxes on sweet nothingness.
People have been bouldering at White Rock conservation park for the last 30 years. The park covers a huge area with a multitude of areas scattered throughout.
This is Brisbane’s closest premier bouldering zone. Be aware of critters, like snakes and spiders! This is the full Aussie Climbing experience.
Slab Land for the technical affectionate, Tattoooine for the burly powerful, Underground for the horizontal roof monkeys and the board walk for old classics.
Lots of the areas can be accessed by a mountain bike. On a bike the half hour walk to White Rock is reduced to about 10 minutes!
Development so far, has mostly been concentrated on the easier accessible areas to trails. This park still has a huge amount of potential and undiscovered areas. So get out there brushing!
White Rock Conservation Area' is in the suburb of Redbank Plains, half an hour or so southwest of 'Brisbane'.

Keep following Redbank Plains Rd through a couple of intersections before turning left into School Rd. Follow School road to its end, then take Norton Sands Drive onto White Rock Dr under the overpass and park in the Paperbark Flats picnic area carpark at the northern end of the conservation area.
Note that even though the Centenary Highway goes right past the conservation area, there isn't an exit onto School Rd
