  • Visited on Saturday 23rd November. We only went as far as Eastern Lookout and parked there. Decided the climb was a bit much for us but there were plenty of others doing it. We just took in the views....  more »
  • Solid half-day walk so take snacks and plenty of water. Would recommend walking poles as the track is mostly stairs and is very rough (in need of repair). We were glad we'd heeded the advice of some.....  more »
  • My first proper mountain hike and it was fantastic! Best to do it before the sun is really up in the sky cause it gets too hot and flies. It is fairly safe walk for solo hikers as long as youre...  more »

  • Amazing place. We got there just as the sun was rising it took my breath away. It gets a bit cold up there so it pays to take a jacket. We managed to do it in 3 hours.
  • Unique WA experience that tops the must-do list. Challenging but achievable climb with a brisk climate change to rev things up at the top. Do the early morning hike for extra kudos.
  • This is a wonderful day out. It is about 5 hour drive from Perth through an amazing scenic route. Then to climb Bluff Knoll will take most people about 90 minutes. The view from the top is absolutely amazing. Then you can have a picnic there. Only slight caution is when there is a storm it is rough at the top. Walk difficulty is medium
  • The climb was not easy - 3km walk and climb to 1km above sea level. It took us a big group of 9 about 3 hours to get to the peak. There are many scenic views along the way up. It is worth the walk and climb at times but I won't do it the second time. It was unfortunate as we were there on a day where the weather was bad. It was cloudy and rainy. We were all disappointed as we reached the peak because it was a blank of white. Couldn't see beyond 5 metres. The brightest time was after we have descended to the car park. What a joke right? So please if you can, go on a sunny day.
