Castle Rock is a tourist attraction in the Porongurup Range in the Great Southern region of Western Australia and is renowned for its fauna and flora.There is a walk trail to the summit which offers 360 degree views, 570m above sea level from a lookout known as the Granite Skywalk. The walk also takes in the unusual 'Balancing Rock', a six metre high granite boulder which reportedly weighs around 186 tonnes yet rests on a base just 1.21m2.A winery located on the eastern slopes of the range is named after this landmark.

  • Great walk. 4.4km return. Moderate climb on way up. Excellent views and cool bridge over rock at the top. Definitely worth visiting. I'm thinking it cost $12-14 but the machine was out when we were there
  • A nice walk with a great view at the end.
