Bluff Knoll

I drove out to the Stirling Range National Park and hiked up southern WA's highest peak - Bluff Knoll.

Stirling Range National Park, Western Australia

The relatively compact Stirling Range rises high above the surrounding plains. The path up Bluff Knoll is wide and well made, but it is still a 650 metre gain in elevation. The hike up took me under and hour, return was about 40 minutes. I quite like peak climbs and hiking, so this was quick, the official recommendation is 3-4 hours. It was a very clear day, and the views rewarding.

I purchased a fantastic photo of the mountain by Christian Fletcher, which I have since framed. Beautiful work.
