4.5 hrs out of Perth lies the town of Gnowangerup, a beautiful town known for its amazing scenery.

  • This area is known as one of the few places in Western Australia to record snowfall.
  • The town itself is very pretty, with a walking trail that will take you on a tour through some of the old buildings and stories.
  • If you’re a keen bush walker, be sure to check out the Stirling Ranges National Park, home to the highest peak in the south of the state – Bluff Knoll.
  • It’s a 4-km trail to the summit, and is a popular hiking destination for locals and tourists alike. When coming down, make sure to go sideways – it’ll save your knees.
