Porongurup

(4.4/5 based on 45+ reviews for 2 attractions)
Things to do: wineries
Porongurup is the name of a small mountain range in the Shire of Plantagenet in Western Australia (see Porongurup National Park for information about the range itself) and of a small village on the northern slopes of the range. At the, Porongurup had a population of 370.The name is derived from the Aboriginal place-name, and consequently arrived with no spelling as such. A common alternate spelling is Porongorup and while some maps still show this spelling, state government signs around the town use "Porongurup", as does the promotion association for the region.The range includes Castle Rock, a popular climbing destination, and the Devils Slide.IndustryThe main industry in the region is dairying, but there are some vegetable crops grown as well. Tourism based on the Porongurup Range's giant karri forests is limited by the difficulty of access because the nearest public transport is in Albany or Mount Barker.As with other parts of the Lower Great Southern region of Western Australia, silviculture, specifically plantations of Tasmanian Blue Gums (Eucalyptus globulus), is becoming a notable, and sometimes controversial, industry in Porongurup.Viticulture is a relatively young but flourishing industry in the region with eleven local wineries listed on the Porongurup Promotion Association web-page at time of writing (March, 2007). The very popular Porongurup Wine Festival is held at a different local winery each year in March.
