About this park
Climb 670m to the top of Castle Rock on the Granite Skywalk. The walkways hug the huge granite boulders and that’s where you’ll get views north to The Stirling Range and south towards farmland and the ocean.
You’ll find all types of walking trails, some that will test your fitness scrambling over and under granite rocks to easier loops through the forest.
Kick off your hiking boots and enjoy a well-earned lunch at one of the picnic areas and barbeques .
For more incredible views, take one of the two scenic drives around and through the park.
If you can get yourself up to the top....well done! The Skywalk is an amazing engineering marvel and the views are incredible. Jill Bossinga -Trip Advisor
- Please take care - there are slippery, rough and uneven surfaces throughout the park.
- Carry two to three litres of drinking water per person for half to full day walks.
- Be prepared for sudden weather changes. Wear boots or sturdy footwear, weatherproof clothing and sun protection. Take plenty of food on hikes and notify someone of your expected time of return.
- The park is baited four times a year to control foxes. The poisonous 1080 baits (small chunks of dried meat or pink sausages) should not be handled.
- Eucalypt trees can shed branches at any time. Be extra aware on windy days for your own safety.
