As inexperienced hikers we really enjoyed this challenge. Take plenty of water. We took off around noon and shared two bottles of water up and back. We could of easily consumed another bottle on the way up. I stayed at the viewing platform while hubby...More

The walk was more strenuous than I expected but well worth it. Remember to take water as there is none there. Lots of families enjoying themselves. Walking boots or track shoes certainly a wise choice.

The Castle Rock is one of the (if not the) main attractions of Porongurup National Park. To clarify, the Castle Rock hiking trail will lead you to both the Balancing Rock and Granite Sky Walk, although TripAdvisor has them split into different pages. The entire...More

A really lovely hike with fabulous views from the top. Most of the walk is through shady bush, alive with song birds and pretty lizards. Our two young kids managed the hike and climb with ease. We had lots of rest stops, wildlife watching stops...More

It's a fun hike! Yes all it takes is a little fitness and determination! The view was beautiful up top and well worth the hike

Do not forget water, good shoes, lightweight jacket, hiking stick and asthma medication. It lulls you with a gentle gradient and good path accessible for wheelchair or prams but do not let this monster fool you, the walk will eventually test the average. Very soon...More

A big walk almost straight up hill, taxing my fitness - phew. I really must join a gym and come back when I'm fitter!

It’s a 4,4km return walk. At the beginning it is easy but then you need to find more and more your way trought the bush. If you arrive at the top, you have to climb over rocks and up a ladder (it’s really windy) to...More

The granite skywalk trail, which leads to Castle Rock, is 2.2 km long (i.e. 4.4 km return) almost all of which is uphill, and quite steep in places. It's not a climb for the faint hearted. Not dangerous - just energy sapping. But once at...More
