Porongurup National Park
Porongurup National Park offers a number of exciting walks for any nature enthusiast of any ability and experience. These spectacular walks are a must for anyone visiting the Porongurup region and boast views of unrivalled beauty. The unique and spectacular rock formations are truly humbling and attest to the timeless nature of the world's oldest mountain range.
Castle Rock - Elevation 500m (1 1/2 Hours)
A favourite but not for the faint of heart. A short bush hike takes you through red gum, jarrah and karri bush to the spectacular Castle Rock and Balancing Rock formation. A scramble through a crevice, up a ladder, along a catwalk and to an outcrop which will reveal magnificent views in all directions.
Tree in the Rock Circuit - Elevation 600 - 650m (2 1/2 hour)
Starting at the picnic area at the end of Colganup Road, this circuit trail encompasses Morgan's Views, Nancy Peak and Hayward Peak. This hike will reveal pristine bush with spectacular views of the surrounding region.
Devil's Slide - Elevation 600 - 650m (2 hours)
A side trail off the Tree in the Rock circuit with a return time from the picnic area of approximately 2 hours. The summit will reveal intriguing rock faces, huge granite formations and affords splendid views.
Stirling Range National Park
The Stirling Range is just on the doorstep of the Porongurup National Park and also offers a variety of stunning walks.
Toolbrunup Park - Elevation 1050m (3 hours)
A popular hike which entails some loose rock, scrambling conditions in places and is considered steep and challenging for the average person. It is recommended to follow the marker posts and not to stray on side tracks.
Mount Hassel - Elevation 850m (2 1/2 hours)
A relatively short hike. The trail is clear but it is easy to stray down a dead end track so be observant. A popular hike affording wonderful views and is not considered difficult.
Bluff Knoll - Elevation 1100m (3 1/2 hours)
This is by far the most popular walk in the Stirling Range. As always there are spectacular views and the trail is well marked.
