Not for the faint heart. Climb during day and try to come down before dark. Steep, rocky climb but can be made.

A hard but rewarding uphill walk on a hard trail that leads to other attractions. Great picnic spot at the start with a bbq, covered tables with seating and toilets.

Very close to Castle Rock at the top of the track. Other similar rocks in the area and also a viewing deck to Stirling Ranges.

This balancing rock is located near the lower lookout of the Granite Skywalk. Worth making the effort to walk the steepish track to get up there and have a look. A bonus for your troubles! You get to do the skywalk. Enjoy!

Have never seen that before, just brilliant :-). The walk took up took us 45 hours. The whole way 1,5 hours included the time on the top and the skywalk. Adventurous and fun.

Just a must to see this huge round just sitting there on top of the mountain not moving, falling over or rolling away. Just brilliant.

You walk most of the way up steep terrain but this rock is huge and just balancing there. Once here you are nearly to the top of the lookout . Not a walk for the faint hearted

After doing the 2.2 km walk up to the Granite Sky Walk you have the extra bonus of seeing this amazing balancing rock.
