Stirling Range National Park
One of the only places in Western Australia where it snows, this spectacular 1159-square kilometre national park should definitely be on your list of places to go in Western Australia. The rugged sandstone and shale cliffs include the highest point in the state – Bluff Knoll at 1095 metres – and shelter 1500 types of plant, including nearly a hundred that are not found anywhere else. Bushwalking in the park is exciting and liberating, with dramatic changes in temperature, windy conditions, mists and fogs, and incredible views along knife-edge ridges. The 6-kilometre-return climb up Bluff Knoll takes three to four hours, but any of the other medium-length walks, such as the hike up the 1052-metre Toolbrunup Peak, are also highly recommended. You can camp at Moingup Springs.
