As an Oldie I found it took longer than the advertised time to get up and back. However, we did stop quite a lot to take pictures. The path is not all good and personally, I would not go in wet weather. It seems like...More

Australia is to be congratulated for the maintenance of its trails. This is a considerable climb, easy enough for anyone with experience of mountain walking. The flora on the way up was extremely interesting. Spectacular at the top. We are getting on in years and...More

If you are very fit you could scale the 4kms of hiking in an hour, for me who is regularly active, it took 1.5hour, it was hard and sweaty but entirely worth it at the top. Bring gloves for the way down, as you grip...More

I have always wanted to climb Bluff Knoll but just recently had the chance to do this. It was everything that I expected and more, but you definitely wouldn't want to do it underprepared. Take HEAPS of water (more than you would think), proper footwear,...More

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!

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 !
