Starting 5 km south of the tiny rural town of Broomehill, 3.5 hours SE of Perth, the trail follows the sealed Broomehill-Gnowangerup Rd all the way through the lovely Gnowangerup township, passing through open farmland along the way, with the majestic Stirling Ranges looming in the distance until you near the entrance to the Stirling Range NP. CLICK HERE for the Google map: https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=1bISEbCJ34eljk9AMK78-4Q-NGAxktXwX&usp=sharing. This approach to the Stirlings is one of Australia's most beautiful drives. Through the interactive map, you can experience and learn about our unique farming and cultural history.
The tractors on The Horsepower Highway are examples of real-life machines that established the agricultural regions around the township of Gnowangerup. Some are displayed in their original, working state, and others have been restored to reflect the fabric and personalities that make up our local community. Each has a name, and story to tell.
Gnowangerup is a Noongar word meaning "place of the Malleefowl". We are known for this icon, the wildlflowers, and streetscape artwork. Stop for a picnic in our lovely Noborach Park (BBQs avaliable), check out the "Ned Kelly" sculpture or the superb mural featuring a rare bird from the Stirling Range NP.--the Yellow-Crested Shrike Tit.

We love to hear from people who've been on our Western Australian trails, so it would be most appreciated it if you wanted to leave a review.
Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
