Description

A group of boulders on the northern spur of a shallow valley, part way between Tower Rocks and Legoland.

Approach

From the 'Elephant Special' area, follow the contour about 200 metres south (towards 'Tower Rocks'). Freebird is located at -35.602335, 148.946054, and is the obvious 15m crack on the wall facing Legoland. These boulders can also be reached by bush-bashing downhill and rightwards just after the flat rock platform on the path from 'Tower Rocks' to 'Legoland'.
