Stirling Range National Park
Named after the first Governor of Western Australia, Captain James Stirling, the Park covers 115 671ha. There are many tracks providing easy access to wildlife and flowers.
Alternately the western access via Tourist Drive No. 253 from Cranbrook takes travellers along the Salt River Road, Red Gum Springs Road and into the heart of the National Park. Picnic areas with barbecue facilities are located throughout the Park.
The ecology is delicately balanced and to ensure the flora and fauna are preserved, camping and fires are permitted only where facilities are provided. Five of the peaks rise to over 1000m and are often shrouded in mist. Some times in mid-winter a light fall of snow will cover them.
