Porongurup Range National Park & Granite Skywalk

Rayanne Homestead is conveniently situated near the foot of The Porongurup Range National Park. The Porongurup Range is home to unique wildflowers and extraordinary birds and wildlife. Will you stand under the Balancing Rock, or climb the Granite Skywalk Ladder? The Skywalk was built in 2011 and is a marvel of modern engineering. A medium grade 2 km uphill path takes the walker through forest rich with plant and bird life, then on to the extraordinary Balancing Rock. Now comes the fun part, you have to scramble over boulders using steel handholds to a vertical 6 metre ladder that takes you up to the Skywalk. The stainless steel walkway wraps around the vertical face of Castle Rock allowing the landscape to unfold before you. Let us help plan a walk to suit you.
