Mount Burnett Walpole

Mount Burnett

Mount Frankland South National Park

Directions - From the centre of Walpole, head west on South Western Hwy for 28km until you see the small sign for Mt Burnett. Take a right here and park in the rest area. The trail starts on the southern side with a new information board showing a map. 


The Hike - With changed plans on a day exploring around Walpole, I was ticking off a few trails on my to-hike list. As chance would have it, as I was checking out at the Tingle All Over Backpackers I noticed a Walks Around Walpole paper brochure on the desk so had a bit of a look. The only place noted was Mount Burnett and based on the location, I wasn't sure it was going to be the best. As I passed it heading out to Mount Pingerup, it looked nothing more than a rest stop on the side of South Western Hwy but given it's close proximity to Mount Pingerup, I decided to check it out after that hike. Parking up in the rest stop area, it actually looked quite promising with wildflowers dotting all around the car park.
