There isn’t too much to say about Balancing Rock. The area has many interesting rock formations, this one is set on private property and can only be seen from a distance. It is a large boulder of granite which rests on a 300mm point amongst other rocks.
The viewing point is right at the sign. There is little room to park, so care must be taken to not obstruct traffic on the highway, and watch out for fast vehicles shooting past.
The rock is interesting, but without proper parking, and being so far from where you can stop, I’m not sure why it has a tourist sign for it.
To get there:
Balancing Rock is along the New England Hwy, about 11kms south of Glen Innes, and 9kms north of Clencoe.
