Walpole Day Trip

Ancient Empire - Valley of the Giants

The Valley of the Giants site includes a boardwalk through a grove of veteran tingle trees known as the Ancient Empire. This area contains the Giants for which the forest was named. Some of the trees are up to 16 metres in circumference at the base. The boardwalk meanders around and sometimes through the old trees. As well as giving visitors a different perspective on the shapes, sounds and movement of the forest the boardwalk is designed to protect the tingle trees from the damaging impact of large numbers of visitors. The first section of the Ancient Empire is suitable for assisted wheelchairs. more »

Valley of the Giants

Situated in the Walpole-Nornalup National Park is the spectacular Tree Top Walk. The Tree Top Walk is a canopy walk constructed through the tingle forest canopy at the Valley of the Giants. It is a series of sixty metre lightweight steel trusses built on steel pylons forming a secure ramp which rises slowly whilst the terrain below falls away to a deep valley. At it’s highest point the 600 metre loop structure is about 40 metres above the forest floor. The Tree Top Walk is suitable for assisted wheelchairs.
