Very challenging
Starting from the Talyuberlup Car Park on Stirling Range Drive, Stirling Range National Park, this walk takes you to the summit of Talyuberlup Peak and back via the Talyuberlup Peak Walk Trail. The walk up Talyuberlup Peak starts with a gentle uphill stroll through Talyuberlup mallee and Veronica's wattle. This rather mild incline turns into a steep and slippery scramble in no time. Once at the base of the cliff face, you follow the trail up to a large cave, which goes through the mountain. The track circles around the cave to the west. You'll get to a broad clifftop after passing by the said cave. Keep an eye out for the rocky spires on your way to the summit as well. Spend some time on the summit exploring the area and admiring the views before heading back down the rocky scramble into the valley. Although there is little signage along the way, the path is easy to discern and wooden pegs have been put in place to guide walkers in the more confusing areas. Trekking poles are recommended as the path can be slippery underfoot. The scrambling requires free hands, with some of the rocks being somewhat slippery and requiring a bit of thought to pick the safest route. Walking is not recommended in wet or windy conditions or in extreme heat. Talyuberlup Peak is definitely a very hard walk, best suited for experienced bushwalkers. However, the challenge is entirely worth it, as the rocky terrain of the mountain's peak makes this a walk of truly rugged beauty. If you are up for an adventure in the Stirling Ranges, then this is truly one of the best. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Turn map Directions & comments
At the intersection of Stirling Range Drive & Talyuberlup Peak walk Start heading along Talyuberlup Peak walk (a walking track).
Find the Talyuberlup Peak carpark at the start.
After another 940 m continue straight, to head along Talyuberlup Peak walk.

Cave - Mount Talyuberlup
Cave - Mount Talyuberlup

The giant mountain cave on the way to the summit is a very impressive structure, and the interesting features on the other side provide plenty to photograph and admire. Although there is a trail marker in the middle of the cave suggesting that straight through is the correct path to take, a plaque warns about the dangers of falling rock and advises against entering the cave in case of a collapse. Through to the other side, it's much more obvious that the cave is indeed slowly collapsing.

Talyuberlup Peak
Talyuberlup Peak

Talyuberlup Peak is the most dramatic rock peak in the Stirling Ranges with a jagged, pinnacled castle-like summit that sits 783m above sea level, providing a unique experience in the range. Talyuberlup is nowhere near the height of the more popular peaks, but what makes this peak so special are the huge granite slabs and canyons at the top. The summit provides extensive views of the Stirling and Porongurup ranges and is an excellent spot to watch the sunrise or sunset.
