Hiking in the Albany Region

Bluff Knoll

The peak of Bluff Knoll in the Albany Region can be reached by following a well formed bush track but it does require a reasonable degree of fitness. It takes about four hours (weather and fitness level permitting) to complete the six-kilometre return climb using the pre-formed track.

Best time to visit is late spring and early summer (October to December) Winter, between June and August, is cold and wet. so come prepared. Even in spring the weather can be unpredictable, particularly higher in the range. Sudden cold changes cause the temperature to drop and rain or hail to set in. All visitors are strongly advised not to enter the bush or use footpaths on days of extreme fire danger. During spring there is an awesome display of wild flowers.

The range is one of few places in Western Australia where snow occasionally falls
