Stirling Range National Park
Hiking and walking
Bluff Knoll is one of the highest peaks in the state at 1073 metres, with forested slopes that lead up into a buckling wall of granite, which is often shrouded with cloud. Be prepared for all weather, because it can even snow on the park’s highest peaks. The hike to the top is 3 hours return, with views stretching east and west across the ridge, and north and south over the plains. For a longer mountain trek, take the two- to three-day Ridge Trail via Ellen Peak, with many more impressive peaks to tackle and one of the state’s best wildflower displays in spring.
