Walpole and Nornalup are two small coastal towns located on the Walpole inlet and the Frankland River some 420 Km. South of Perth Where the mighty Karri and Tingle forests meet the Southern Ocean.
Unique in this area of the State the giant Tingle tree forest has spurned the opening up of two of the South coast’s most impressive tourist attractions. The Ancient Empire trail in the Valley of the Giants leads the visitor through spectacular forest scenery and the Tree Walk a 430 metre long walkway which enables the visitor to easily walk through the uppermost branches of these ancient trees 40 meters above the forest floor.
This southern coastline is famous for its pristine beaches, east of Walpole is the William Bay National Park and one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
A popular stopover in this region is the Observatory Resort overlooking the inlet and the Nullakai Peninsular.
