Walks start from King Saddle Shelter.
A number of interpretive signs are positioned along the trail, telling the stories of Mt Stirling's history, from the olden days of logging to the thrill of the ‘Man From Snowy River' movie set and the characters that create the past and present, as well as the flora and fauna that make up the stunning environment.

Whilst camping is not permitted on Mt Buller, our natural alpine partner Mt Stirling has a number of locations for enjoying the Australian alpine wilderness. Please read through the tips below to ensure you have a fantastic camping experience and leave the alps in pristine condition for all to enjoy.
- Camp amongst the snow gums rather than in the lower Mountain Ash areas - Mountain Ash are prone to falling unpredictably.
- Be prepared for all weather conditions. The weather can change suddenly and without warning in alpine areas.
- Be sure to take a map and compass and learn to use them before you head off.
- Tell someone where you are going or complete a trip intention form.
- Use the toilets provided, or ensure you dig deep holes 100 metres from waterways in order to protect the health of both animals and humans.
- Take note of fire safety and evacuation locations. DO NOT light fires on fire ban days- if you are not sure, then don't light it!
- Be sure you haven't disturbed any precious flora or fauna on your hike.
- Use the rubbish bins provided or carry your litter away with you.
