See giant red tingle trees at Walpole-Nornalup National Park in the south of Western Australia. These towering old growth forests are part of the Walpole Wilderness area and have remained virtually untouched.
To get up close to these pristine forest beauties visit the Valley of the Giants and Tree Top Walk to the east of Walpole. You can get a magnificent view of the forest canopy from the Tree Top Walk, while the Valley of the Giants leads you to giant red tingle trees with trunks up to 20 metres in circumference.
Walpole-Nornalup National Park is also home to a rugged coastline, peaceful inlets, rivers and forests of karri trees.
In the south-west of the park, about 5,000 hectares of near-pristine bushland has been set aside for bushwalkers. The famous Bibbulmun Track passes through the Walpole-Nornalup National Park on its 1,000 kilometre route from the Perth hills to Albany.
If you’re visiting between February and April there’s also the chance to see the annual migration and spawning run of the Australian salmon.
There is camp sites dotted throughout the park.
The park surrounds the towns of Walpole, Nornalup and Peaceful Bay, a five hour drive south of Perth.
