Mountain Walks in the Stirling Range - Part 2 is now out of print
The eastern peaks book detailing the Stirling Ridge walk has now completely sold out. I am in the process of producing a new book entitled "Walks in the Porongurup and Stirling Ranges" and this will include The Stirling Ridge Walk; however, it's still some time away from completion. In the meantime you'll find updates to the old book, and some further information at Stirling Ridge Walk
