The massive ancient granite domes of Porongurup National Park rise 670 metres, giving exhilarating views of the landscape, especially from the Granite Skywalk suspended on Castle Rock. 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. 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.
