One Day Drives From Kendenup
The Stirling Circle Tourist Drive
The Stirling Ranges provide a day out among magnificent vistas if rolling mountains and jagged peaks. Watch out for the unique Australian Wildlife and in September thru to January the wildflowers, some which can be seen all year round, are particularly prolific.
Take some extra time and in the right conditions for your vehicle travel Red Gum Pass and the Stirling Range Drive where you will be able to get right in amongst the wildflowers and find some interesting walks.
Climbing Bluff Knoll, Mount Trio or one of the other many hills that are suitably accessible you will see vistas stretching away to the distance across farmlands and national parks.
Plan well ahead and be prepared for climbing; allow plenty of time and take adequate provisions. The Bluff Knoll climb is a round walk and climb of 6kms, can take up to four hours and needs a reasonable level of fitness.
195kms / 2 1/2 hours plus stopping time
