Bald Rock, Boonoo Boonoo and Basket Swamp National Parks all closed after the February month’s destructive Wallangarra wildfire!
It’s too dangerous to go walking in Tenterfield national parks after last month’s terrible fires.
National Parks area manager Michael Lieberman said parks had been badly damaged by the Wallangarra fire which burnt across national park, state forest and private property.
Bald Rock, Boonoo Boonoo and Basket Swamp National parks would “remain closed for the foreseeable future” Mr Lieberman said, “There is a real risk to the public from damaged trees falling and it is extremely important that people stay away, taking note of barriers and warning signs.”
As Boulder Lodge is situated between these fire ravaged national parks, we too are closed until the parks reopen.
Thank you for all your kind support and patience during this difficult time. – John & Barb Brown

Boulder Lodge was started by a man called Jim Dunton. extremely clever with his hands he had a few practice runs, building small buildings on the property out of local stone and then, Jim already in his 70’s, took up the project to build a residence on a hill at the property among the granite boulders. He decided to use a boulder as one side wall for the building and make up the other three with granite rocks and concrete. This was in about 1990 and after a number of years the physical work became too much for him and he became too old to complete the building himself. On his death, the Brown and Muller families decided to finish the building and turn it into unique accommodation in the New England, Northern Tablelands which is just over the border from the Granite Belt in South East Queensland.
