Stirling Range National Park

Our last stop on our Big Lap

sunny 28 °C

Our last stop before returning to Fremantle was the spectacular Stirling Range National Park. I have always maintained that the mountains on the Australian mainland were not as spectacular as in South Africa, but after visiting the Stirling Range I can admit that I was wrong. The mountains are breathtaking and they are reminicent of the Western Cape mountains in South Africa.

We camped in the only campsite in the national park at Moingup Springs where we saw the biggest flock of Black Cockotoos that we have seen so far. We hiked halfway up the highest peak, Bluff Knoll, to enjoy the panoramic views of the peak and the other peaks in the range in the distance.

This was a nice conclusion of our trip and we will return to Fremantle almost 13 months since we departed for our Big Lap of Australia.
