There are a number of other prominent peaks, being Toolbrunup Peak (1052m), Mount Magog and Mount Trio (856m), Mount Hassell (847m), and Talyuberlup Peak (783m). Without any foothills the peaks rise starkly and impressively from the surrounding plains.
The height and south coast proximity of the ranges produces a unique climate giving rise to a location that is famous for rare West Australian snow falls.
The Stirling Range is renowned for its unusual, and sometimes spectacular cloud formations. Park visitors may notice two types of unusual cloud formations about the peaks, often when the rest of the sky is clear.
A shallow, low-level stratified cloud that drapes over the higher peaks is a familiar sight. Another type of shallow cloud layer may leave the higher peaks exposed, which is a unique sight in Western Australia.
The unusual climate also gives rise to a range of wildflowers that are staggering in both their number and beauty. The National Park is one of the world's most important areas for flora, with 1,500 species (many of which grow nowhere else) packed within its boundaries and 123 Orchid species.
The Stirling Range National Park is a mecca for sightseers, flora lovers, bushwalkers, trekkers and rock climbers alike.
