In partnership with Valley of the Giants Tree Top Walk
The Valley of the Giants, in the Walpole-Nornalup National Park, is an iconic region on the south coast of Western Australia, located between the towns of Denmark and Walpole. In the heart of the Walpole Wilderness Area, the Valley of the Giants Tree Top Walk features a stunning walkway positioned 40 metres above the ground in the spectacular heights of the tingle forest canopy. Designed to immerse you in the forest and leave the ecosystem untouched, the walk blends seamlessly into its surrounds, inspired by the sword grass and the tassel flower it serves to protect. Suspended effortlessly in the air, the walk moves gently, just like the sway of the trees. In a busy world, be inspired to stop, reflect and connect with nature. The 600-metre walk is also wheelchair and pram accessible.
A walk trail links the Tree Top Walk to the Ancient Empire, where a wheelchair-accessible trail meanders across the forest floor between 400-year-old red tingle trees. With their huge, hollowed-out trunks, the red tingle trees are just as spectacular when viewed at ground level as they are from high up in the forest canopy. This ancient and unique red tingle forest is a must-see experience. Some of the forest plants, including the ancient giant tingle trees, have origins that can be traced back 65 million years to the supercontinent Gondwana – when Australia was joined with what are now Africa, India, Antarctica, Madagascar, Arabia and South America. Much of the plant life in the tingle forest is unique to Western Australia’s South West, and the tingle trees are endemic to a limited area surrounding the town of Walpole.
Admission fees apply for the Tree Top Walk only. Entry to the Ancient Empire and Discovery Centre is free.
