Wansbrough Walk is a 4km, grade 4 return hike, located in Porongurup National Park, Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 1hr to complete.

Hike Summary

This eight kilometre return hike takes you through towering Karri forest along a gully between Nancy’s Peak and Devil’s Slide in the Porongurup National Park.

The spectacular seasonal wildflowers and the variety of outdoor activities draw thousands of visitors to the Porongurup National Park each year.   The Wansbrough Walk takes you along a track through the gully of Devil's Slide and Nancy's Peak. You will pass through both karri forests in the higher slopes and open jarrah/marri forests in the lower slopes. Some walkers leave a car at Millingup Road the trail end, instead of walking back to the Picnic Area. The Park covers an area of 2620ha, with the range extending for 12 kilometres. The area has one of the richest concentrations of plant species in Australia, with over 700 native plant species.  

About the region

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. 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.
