Mount Frankland Walks Choose from several walks depending on how much time you have and your fitness level. The Towerman’s Hut is an easy walk to a barbecue area where you can explore the old hut built in 1956. From here the towerman left to climb to the summit of Mount Frankland several times a day to watch for fires and check the weather. View the Walpole Wilderness from high above the forest floor on the spectacular Wilderness View Lookout. From here it is a challenge to see any sign of human activity or habitation. Follow The Summit Trail to the towerman’s lookout on top of Mount Frankland. While the walk is strenuous, the views make it worthwhile – on a clear day you can see the Porongu

Middleton Beach might arguably be Albany’s most well-known beach, offering swimming and recreational beach activities all round the year. The waters are protected by King George Sound, making Middleton Beach a popular surfing spot for kids. Fish off the Middleton Beach jetty, or just sit and enjoy the fresh air. Dine at one of the popular Middleton Beach cafes, or embark on a walk up Ellen Cove Boardwalk. Middleton Beach is also a popular whale-watching spot, accessible to all ages. Spot whales just metres away from shore!

The Stirling Range Drive winds through the heart of the park and offers ever-changing views of rugged peaks, each with its unique character.

Bluff Knoll is the most popular trail in the Stirling Range with outstanding 360 degree views from the summit. The walk starts at the southern end of the Bluff Knoll car park and picnic area. The trail first drops down to a creek and then goes across a mountainside to a saddle. Here you can look over the ridge to the south coast. The trail then turns left and follows the ridge to the summit. Eucalypt woodland, banksia and grass trees blanket the lower slopes while exposed outcrops reveal layers in the rock – evidence of fine sediments that settled on the bottom of an ancient shallow sea long ago and then slowly became compressed into layers of rock.

As with other walks in the Stirling Range, Mount Hassell features a profusion of colour during the wildflower season. The walk is a moderately difficult trail that starts gently from the car park. It steepens as it approaches a ridge and then leads through thick bush across a saddle. The final scramble up the small rocky castle that forms the summit is easier than it looks from below though extra care should be taken when the rocks are wet and slippery. For more information visit TrailsWA.

The Mount Magog walk starts at a picnic site nestled amongst tall wandoo trees. From here the trail crosses a creek, then emerges from the trees and meanders across open country before rising steeply through thick bush to a clearing on the ridge between Mount Magog and Talyuberlup Peak to the south-east. Then it’s a steep scramble up to the summit as the trail crosses various rocky outcrops. For more information visit TrailsWA.
