Ancient Lands, New Adventures

Embraced by two ancient mountain ranges, Mount Barker and its surrounding towns are treasures waiting to be discovered.

To the south, the Porongurup Range is an ancient escarpment known for its rounded granite domes, rich biodiversity, karri forests and stunning trails.

To the north lies the much younger Stirling Range – a popular attraction for the thrill seekers, with Bluff Knoll offering climbers spectacular views and occasional snow during winter. The Stirling Range is recognised as one of the richest areas for flora in the world.

The region is abundant in natural, indigenous and colonial history, and the land whispers quiet secrets. The local people share their stories of passion and a genuine love for the land on which they live.

Filled with adventure, discovery and pleasure, Mountain Country WA will take your breath away and refresh and renew your soul.

gday Mount Barker Visitors Centre its me Patrick Charles Calling the last Last Time a train passed through Mount Barker Railway Station was Hotham Valley Tourist Railway on a Special Train trip down to Albany and return and the RETIRED TRANSWA Australind Passenger was Parked and Stabled Recently Down @ HVTR Pinjarra Rail yard and then its getting trucked Transported to South West Rail heritage Centre @ Boyanup where it will be on Display and the Transperth Armadale line is CLOSED Due to METRONET Brand New Raised Railway Lines and Brand New METRONET Railway stations and Byford will get its METRONET Station and the Brand NEW METRONET Australind Passenger Train is being built out at METRONET East Midland rail Factory Facility and HVTR Only Runs their Forest Ranger from out @ Isandra Siding east of Pinjarra and up the Steepest Grade in Western Australia and the only other Trains that do come down to Albany are the Wood Chip trains they all stable at the Railway Station in Albany so our WA Government has decided to Exstend the Perth electric Tramway association from Whiteman Park to just south of Whiteman Park Station to Connect to Metronet Passenger Train services so thats in the Pipeline so i know your hoping and hoping for Passenger Trains to Once run again into Albany Railway Station again But i wouldnt keep your hopes up the Only other Service that does run to Albany is TRANSWA Road Coach Services from East perth Interstate Rail terminal and from Bunbury Passenger Terminal around Through DonnyBrook,Bridgetown,Manjimup,Pemberton,Northcliffe and across and down into Albany and through Narrogin,Katanning,Mount Barker past the Stirling Ranges so thats the only Transportation Service in and out of Albany from me Patrick Charles.

The Royal Navy Special Service Squadron arrived Fremantle (27 Feb 1924), and departed Albany (06 Mar 1924) ..... it was a veritable who's who of dignitaries that attended the Albany Forums, using that train service. www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid=832555612215011&set=a.3392989030760327
