Yes, Rufous Treecreepers are common in the Stirling Range.  Mostly where 
there is wandoo (of which there are a number of areas), but also where 
there is karri (a few areas plus the nearby Porongorups).

They can be semi tame in places.  In the Porongorups I have seen them 
hopping around a picnic area and around and under cars in the car park.
