The National Heritage-listed Stirling Range National Park features some of the best mountain walks in WA, plus the state’s best rock climbing and abseiling. Nearby Borden offers picturesque farming country, with campgrounds, B&Bs, farmsteads, retreats and a pub.

Keen campers should head to Stirling Range Retreat at Chester Pass. It’s is an accredited eco-tourism destination with powered and unpowered camp sites. The Stirling Range itself is renowned internationally for its diverse and prolific bird life, as well as providing a home to more than 1500 species of wildflower.

In spring, there are daily bus tours to see the magnificent floral displays, departing from Stirling Range Retreat. Dawn and dusk bird walks, led by BirdLife Australia, leave from the same place. Bird lovers can see the endangered malleefowl in its natural environment at The Yongergnow Malleefowl Centre in Ongerup, where you’ll also find interpretive displays, an aviary, gallery, bush-walking trails and more.
Up for a challenge? The Stirling Ridge Walk is an extreme extended mountain walk for experienced, well- prepared hikers that requires a two-night bivouac.
