  • Bluff Knoll is amazing, the views are awesome... but it is a long way to the top and can be very challenging. Please remember to park at the visitor center NOT THE FRONT GATE as that will add 8KMS!!! ...  more »

  • Quite the distance from Perth, but the trip can be made in a day; we left home at 6:30, travelled to Bluff Knoll, climbed the mountain, drove back to Perth arriving at 8:00pm. The climb is manageable for all ages, I think. As recommended, bring plenty of fluid and a nice camera! The trail is arduous, but the view is definitely worth the climb.
  • Scenic views. Takes about 3 hours to reach the peak and get back to the car park.
  • doable hike for family with young kids..
  • Great views from the top. Easy drive in to the bottom with a paved carpark and plenty of room to sit and enjoy the scenery. The path up can be challenging at times but still possible to the average person. Weather can change rapidly so keep an eye on the sky and prepare for all seasons. The top of Bluff Knoll is not wheelchair accessible.
  • Was able to complete the hike even thorough not a regular hiker but do have a reasonable level of fitness. Weather can change quickly so prepare for all seasons. A great experience and would certainly do it again.
