We started early in the morning around 8. The weather was not the best. The peak was surrounded by clouds when we started the climb. The good thing about the walkway is that it is a precast one, so you always know where to go...More

Stunning vistas are your reward for a treacherous hike up the stoney, uneven and sometimes very steep steps. If you have knee problems or are unfit, you're going to suffer going down that pathway. Take water, a camera and a towel to wipe the sweat...More

Bluff Knoll is a fantastic walk/climb. From the carpark, the path leads across a valley before ascending. The trail is pretty easy with alot of steep stairs. Nothing too scary. Bluff Knoll is actually called Pualaar Miial by the original Noonga people (Qaaniyan and Koreng...More

Amazing how the vegetation changes as your altitude increases. From dirt tracks and thick bush, to a very rocky summit with a much clearer view. Tough climb though. I'm of average fitness level and had to rest frequently. It took 2 hours to reach the...More

Not for the faint hearted, but worth the walk for the great views, and changing scenery as you go. Nice waterfalls to sit by and replenish water supplies as you go.

The climb is 3.1 kilometres (i.e. a return trip of 6.2 km) and most of it is uphill. It gets quite steep at times. The trail is well marked and maintained by the National Park so the climb is not dangerous if common sense is...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
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 !
