Easier than expected to get to and the trek was easy for me using a walking stick with no rain or wind

It's an amazing place to visit, need much effort to climb up on the top to see the beautiful views. The weather changes very often so plan accordingly plus keep plenty of food and drinks to keep you going.

We started early in the morning around 8. The weather was not the best. The peak was surrounded by clouds when we started the climb. The good thing about the walkway is that it is a precast one, so you always know where to go...More

No camping sorry, the closest is at the base of the Porongarups
Hi guys! I was planning to drive to Bluff Knoll for a potential proposal at the top or something? Just wondering how long one would moderately walk up Bluff Knoll? Is there a best time to go, and more importantly is it very crowded at the top? I'm thinking end of November so I am hoping the weather is moderate, but not sure how busy it gets up there - it would be great to have a few minutes of quiet time with just us preferably to pop the question. Any advice or feedback on this idea for those that have been to the top? Would it have enough of a 'wow ' factor from the top , otherwise I could scrap the idea and find something that would leave a more memorable impression? How long would it then take to get back down? 2 hrs? I am wondering also if it is reasonable to picnic or sit up the top to 'celebrate' and relax, or if it is quite a rocky/uncomfortable area to laze around - but with great views of course? Would anyone have any suggestions on nearby things to do after? Thinking of departing on sat morning from Perth, so given it takes 3 or 4 hours to get there around lunch time I assume Saturday would be a write off by the time we get back down. I am then thinking the closest thing that makes sense is heading to Albany for the night, and enjoying the Sunday at wineries and local things around there before heading back to Perth by evening?? I think Pemberton is nearby Bluff Knoll but if anyone has any suggestions on towns, things to see/do down that way that'd be great as we usually head down Margaret River way. So this is probably the best chance to tick off a few things. We love our food, wine and anything different, so I figured Albany was best? Sorry for the many questions - I've never been or climbed Bluff Knoll so have no idea what to expect !
