The Granite Skywalk

The Granite Skywalk in the Porongurup National Park, north of Albany, proved to be a pretty tough walk today. Although only 570 metres in elevation the walk is not for the faint hearted. The 2.2km walk is uphill all the way…climbing over rocks, through crevices, up a section that only has pegs/handles in the rocks to pull yourself up to scramble over the rocky formations and then up a ladder to finally get to the skywalk…it was hard work! Fortunately is was a lovely cool day but unfortunately the 360 degree views were a little hazy as you will see in the photo’s.

We passed karri, jarrah and red gum trees and the wildflowers were still flowering.

On the way home we stopped at Monderup Street Reserve in Mt Barker to see these lovely orchids and wildflowers.

It is a great time to be in the south of Western Australia.
