Bluff Knoll, Stirling Range National Park Information
Located in the Stirling Range National Park, Bluff Knoll is the highest and one of the most spectacular peaks in south Western Australia. Requiring some fitness, the moderate five kilometre return hike is a picturesque two hour journey to the panoramic views from the bluff before the one hour descent to the base.
Formed more than 1,000 million years ago, Bluff Knoll is the highest peak in the Stirling Range, reaching 1,095 metres above sea level. Due to its highest and proximity to the south coast, the climate in the range differs from that of the surrounding district. As a result of this unique topography and climate, over 1,000 species of wildflowers and flowering plants thrive within the park including Mountain Bells and the Queen of Sheba Orchid.
This Top Trail commences from the car park, along a well formed and maintained path. The weather can often surprise you: no matter how hot you feel in the car park before beginning the climb, take a sweater with you. The weather can change quickly on the summit.
Information shelters in the park provide information about the plant and animal life in the area and guide you to sites of interest.
