Description

Porongurup Range is a fascinating place for picnicking and bush rambles. It is a place of incredible biodiversity, with 750 native plant species in an area of just 2600 hectares.

Range of experiences

Paths lead to several peaks, other paths cross the range, and a nature trail leads through the forest near the Tree-in-the-Rock picnic area. The Castle Rock picnic area is another great picnic spot and also the start of a 4.4 km return walk to the Granite Skywalk with its incredible views. For a short video overview of the Skywalk, click here.

Scenic driving

Enjoy impressive views from a 23 km drive around the entire range (mostly unsealed with steep sections) via Bolganup Road, Angwin Park Road, Woodlands Road, Millinup Road, Chester Pass Road and Mount Barker-Porongurup Road.

A 5km drive (unsealed with steep sections) along Angwin Park Road between Bolganup Road and Woodlands Road offers outstanding views of granite outcrops and Stirling Range to the north.
