S = Salmon Holes
Salmon Holes in the Torndirrup National Park is a spot not to be missed. Walk down the stairs and let the sand squelch between your toes. Watch the crashing waves, but be aware of the signs. I love the look on the fishermen’s faces as they reel in a Salmon.
T = Toolbrunup
Enjoy magnificent uninterrupted views from the summit of Mt Toolbrunup, the second highest peak in the Stirling Range. A good degree of fitness is required for this 4 kilometre return hike.
