Porongurup National Park

Porongurup National Park is located in southwestern Australia, 30 miles (48 km) north of Albany. 55 million years ago, this rocky land was an island surrounded by the sea. Now it’s home to incredible biodiversity, with 750 native plant species in just 2600 hectares. The focal point of the park remains the ancient granite domes that rise above the landscape, with incredible views from the from the Granite Skywalk at Castle Rock. The area is sparsely populated, leading to exceptionally dark skies for viewing the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds.
