  • As one of its highest peaks, this is one of the few places where snow ever falls in Western Australia. With a 5 and 8 year old, we weren't sure we'd make it, but we made it and by the end there was a ...  more »
  • Was a hard hike (average fitness) and the weather was against us. The view from the top was non visible we were in the clouds.. but it was still a spectacular beautiful hike and I would highly recomme...  more »
  • We hiked Bluff Knoll on Good Friday, we were directed into the car park by park rangers with no problems at about 8:45am, but by the time we left at midday they had implemented a ‘one-in one-out’ rule...  more »

  • A world class location with an excellent easily followed, well made track to the summit. The views are well worth the climb! Take plenty of water, some snacks, and choose comfortable footwear with gripping power to avoid slips (boots that can provide some ankle support would be perfect). Check the weather, and dress appropriately (the best would be to carry a light rucksack with a few extra items of clothing and your supplies - a rewarding hot beverage from a thermos flask would not go amiss either). It gets windy and cold up there, especially around half way up, where for a short way the trail leaves the bush and walkers are exposed to the elements.
  • Took us two hours to get up and had sore legs the next couple days. Path/steps in good condition. Stayed at the top for 1 hour, just admiring the landscape. Loved it. Will come back in Spring for the wildflowers.
  • A fantastic walk, not to be missed if you're in the area or nearby. Indeed you will find it pretty tough if you don't have a moderate level of fitness. Views are well worth it though and a proper sense of achievement once you reach the top.
  • It's not a technical climb, or even a difficult one. It just takes a little time. But when you get to the top, the view is magical and the weather changes rapidly making it a beautiful place in the world to sit and watch the day go by. In winter it sometimes gets some snow, which is a novelty. Well worth the visit
  • Amazing walk up, take your time and it's do able for most ages. The staff at the cafe are great and the volunteer ranger is lovely
