The spot where you swap stories of your climb up Bluff Knoll and adventures to Mt Toolbrunup, Mt Hassell, Mt Trio, Mt Talyuberlup and Mt Magog….. of snow on Bluff Knoll and stunning sunrises from our mountain peaks.

This indoor/outdoor camp lounge with a lovely cosy wood heater provides shelter from cooler nights. Also, it’s a wonderful place to relax during the day. The lounge has a long history and has been lovingly restored from an old mine site and local farm.

The wood heater in the lounge has been designed from recycled tractor brake drums by Richard ‘The Bear’ Hoar. Firewood is supplied from the farm as we work, it’s picked, cut and stacked by us to keep you warm whilst you are here.

Mountain Walks & Guided Wildflower Orchid Walks

The Aboriginal name for the Stirling Range, Koi Kyenunu-ruff, meaning ‘mist rolling around the mountains is a frequently seen occurrence in this amazing range of mountains.

Walk trails are marked on most of the mountains in the Range and are a showcase of fauna, birdlife, geology and flora, including incredible seasonal orchids and beautiful wildflowers.

Maps and information on mountain walks is available @ StirlingRangeTrails.com.au and in our Table Tennis/Information Room.

During September and October, Guided Wildflower Orchid Walks operate daily and leave the camp lounge at 8.30am. Bookings are essential. These walks are graded ‘easy’ and explore the surrounding bushland.

Over 100 species of orchids have been discovered over the years.

You can identify all the orchids you have seen during your ‘spring walk’ – an ID picture chart by our local guide/photographer Jarrad Dawson, is on display in the Table Tennis/Information Room.
