This is a wonderful walk, my advice is stop often and take time to soak up the atmosphere of the real bush and get your breath back. It is worth the effort to do this walk. Awesome.

Fabulous walk through the forest to the top of the mountain to see some spectacular views including the balancing rock and the amazing skywalk. Not for the faint hearted.

The Tree in the Rock area of the Porongorups has more walks, also with stunning views. The 5.5 kms Nancy Peak loop walk is our favourite, with views north to the Stirling Range and south to the coast. There is another shorter but also steep...More

There’s a little trick to be aware of when you start this walk; the info board says it’s a 2.4 km walk to the granite clifff walk (east you think; 30 minutes I’ll be there) ; what it doesn’t tell you is that it’s 2.4...More

Take a detour off the main drag (Albany Highway) and drive through the Porongurup National Park. Incredible views and well worth the time taken to check it all out.
