Castle Rock, Western Australia
There is a walk trail to the summit which offers 360 degree views, 570 metres (1,870 ft) above sea level from a lookout known as the Granite Skywalk. The walk also takes in the unusual 'Balancing Rock', a six-metre-high (20 ft) granite boulder which reportedly weighs around 186 tonnes yet rests on a base just 1.21 square metres (13.02 sq ft).
A winery located on the eastern slopes of the range is named after this landmark.
Bay whaling was conducted on the coast between 1845 and 1872.
