Castle Rock

The Castle Rock picnic area is a great location for picnics with excellent facilities and is the starting point for the walk to the Granite Skywalk.

Description

Castle Rock Trail: A relatively steep return walk to the Granite Skywalk leads from this site. Moderate to good fitness is required. The path traverses yate, marri and karri forest and takes you past the famous Balancing Rock. Flat granite slabs offer views and places to rest. Karri Lookout is a place to ponder the Porongurup Range landscape, forests and wildlife.

Reaching the Granite Skywalk on the summit of Castle Rock requires scrambling over and under granite rocks and then climbing a 6m ladder.  

Devils Slide

The highest of the Porongurup’s round-topped peaks has magnificent views from the summit.

Description

Wineries, fine restaurants and some of the areas abundant accommodation options jostle for space at the feet of the granite tops of the Porongurup Range. Livestock is still farmed on the surrounding land, a shadow of the past when the early settlers made a good living out of the fertile soil and consistent rainfall.

The Tree-in-the-Rock Picnic Area

The Tree-in-the-Rock picnic area, set among the karri trees, almost has the feel of a cathedral, with the towering karris providing the domed roof.

  • Activities:Walking
  • Facilities:Walking Trails

Description

The Tree-In-The-Rock, after which the site has been named, is just 100 metres along a shaded walk.  Extending its roots down through a crevice, this mature karri clings to existence on a granite boulder. Karri and marri are the most dominant trees in this area, while karri hazel, karri wattle and tassel bush form part of the understorey. Australian Bluebell can be recognised by its small bell-like mauve flowers from October to February.
