Thoroughly enjoyed this hike! It was tough for us “oldies” but manageable and very satisfying! The views are stunning and we were lucky to reach the summit when it was clear!

We hadn't planned to go very far but couldn't stop ourselves from wanting to go further. The car par, amenities, paths and signs were dramatically improved from the last time I was there many years ago. It was wildflower time and the scenery was stunning....More

Great national park site and walk. Scenery and walk to top is great with plenty of wildflowers and birdlife. Large carpark with facilities to cater for tourists - shelters, viewing decks and toilets (at the base)..

It was a challenging climb that took me three hours to reach the top and two hours to come down. Steps were difficult in the mid section of the climb and it becomes less difficult towards the top. Being the spring season views at the...More

Started walking at 3.30am with headlights. Had the moon setting over the clouds and then the sunrise over cascading clouds - the surrounding mountains looked like islands in the ocean. What an experience. Hard climbing but worth the effort.

It have some challenges going up, but if you take your time you will make it to the top. Great view, with clean air. Amazing to see kids going up to the mountain.

Went with perfect weather so was relatively easy. The views were pretty good, but nothing compared to places outside of oz. My gf is 7 months pregnant and did it easy, so don't stress. If the weather is bad this would be the only challenge....More

check out sterling range for camp, and make sure you go early in the morning to avoid the sun.
Hi guys! I was planning to drive to Bluff Knoll for a potential proposal at the top or something? Just wondering how long one would moderately walk up Bluff Knoll? Is there a best time to go, and more importantly is it very crowded at the top? I'm thinking end of November so I am hoping the weather is moderate, but not sure how busy it gets up there - it would be great to have a few minutes of quiet time with just us preferably to pop the question. Any advice or feedback on this idea for those that have been to the top? Would it have enough of a 'wow ' factor from the top , otherwise I could scrap the idea and find something that would leave a more memorable impression? How long would it then take to get back down? 2 hrs? I am wondering also if it is reasonable to picnic or sit up the top to 'celebrate' and relax, or if it is quite a rocky/uncomfortable area to laze around - but with great views of course? Would anyone have any suggestions on nearby things to do after? Thinking of departing on sat morning from Perth, so given it takes 3 or 4 hours to get there around lunch time I assume Saturday would be a write off by the time we get back down. I am then thinking the closest thing that makes sense is heading to Albany for the night, and enjoying the Sunday at wineries and local things around there before heading back to Perth by evening?? I think Pemberton is nearby Bluff Knoll but if anyone has any suggestions on towns, things to see/do down that way that'd be great as we usually head down Margaret River way. So this is probably the best chance to tick off a few things. We love our food, wine and anything different, so I figured Albany was best? Sorry for the many questions - I've never been or climbed Bluff Knoll so have no idea what to expect !
