The Stirling Range National Park has some of Western Australia's highest peaks and most spectacular bush walks. Long known for their "brooding beauty" the mountains have a lot to offer the avid bush walker and casual observer - it is an experience not to be missed!
Wildflower Hot Spot
The camp ground abounds in stunning seasonal orchids with over 50 different species sighted over the last few years.
These orchids and other beautiful flowers can be seen around the camp and on Guided Wildflower Orchid Walks at 08:30am (1st Sept - 30 Nov) Bookings phone 0419 751 801.
Fauna Hot Spot
Kangaroos, Brush Tail Wallabies, Brushtail Possums and Emus are frequent visitors to our Camp. Quokkas, Numbats, Chuditch, the Short Nosed Brown Bandicoot and the Honey Possum also live in the adjacent Stirling Range National Park.
Bird Life Hot Spot
The magnificent Wedge-tail Eagles can be seen circling the mountains and farmland. Flocks of rare Carnaby's Black Cockatoo fly through the Camp. Along the Camp Nature Trail, an abundance of birds can be seen including the Yellow-rumped Thornbills, Splendid Wrens, and Scarlet and Western Yellow Robins.
At night, the peace of the Camp Ground is interrupted only by the calls of the Boobook Owl and the Tawny Frogmouth.
