The Granite Skywalk is an icon of Porongurup. Adventure along the 3km round trip walk that takes you to a skywalk set into a giant granite boulder perched atop the Porongurup Range.

You'll have to be brave for this climb! The stunning landscape seen from here is well worth the final 200metre scramble over the rocks. The Porongurup Range rises from the landscape like an island surrounded by a sea of giant Karri trees.
