The final of our top ten Australian day walks, Bluff Knoll is the highlight of the Stirling Range National Park in South East Western Australia on two feet and a heart beat.
As a general rule, Western Australia has hills, not mountains.
But you wouldn’t know it when you’re standing beneath the chiselled mass of Bluff Knoll.
Armour plated in rock, and with a summit that protrudes like Roger Ramjet’s chin, this craggy mountain is softened only by the wildflower displays that decorate its slopes each spring.
From the trailhead, Bluff Knoll’s summit cliffs appear impenetrable but the walking track knows better, nudging its way through a break in the escarpment before U-turning back towards the peak.
Views from there stretch across the craggy Stirling Range and south towards the Albany coast.
