Located just 20 kilometres east of Mt Barker and 50 kilometres north of Albany is the Porongurup National Park, famous for the Granite Sky Walk, a suspended observation platform that snakes around Castle Rock providing breath taking 360 degree views of the South Coast. The Porongurup Ranges and its granite rock resulted from the heating and reworking of the crust involved in the collision between Australia and Antartica forming Gondwana about 1.1 billion years ago.

The Porongurup region produces some truly astonishing award winning wines and plays host to the Porongurup Wine Festival each year over the March long weekend.

The region has a number of dining options from winery platters, restaurants and taverns and accommodation from simple camp grounds to boutique hideaway retreats.
