Mount Cooke, near Jarrahdale, Western Australia, is the highest point on the Darling Scarp at 582 metres (1,909 ft). It was named after William Ernest Cooke, Western Australia's first Government Astronomer.

Mount Cooke is well known for its walk track which is part of the Bibbulmun Track.[1] The Bibbulmun walk track leads from a parking and picnic area, and goes thousands of metres through the Jarrah forest, coloured with a host of wildflowers in all seasons, to the summit of Mount Cooke.

Mount Cooke is within the Monadnocks Conservation Park[2] and administered by the Department of Environment and Conservation.
