Valley of the Giants

Valley of the Giants-Western Australia

Western Australia, not often included in a first timers trip, but should be. The beauty and diversity of the terrain alone begs you to visit.  One place amongst this land to include is roughly a half day drive south of Perth, the territory's capital. 

After enjoying your breathtaking drive, you will arrive amongst towering forests of giant red tingle trees.  The tingles can reach heights of 40 meteres. These trees are unique to the Walpole valley in Westeren Australia and it is here in their tree tops you will find The Tree Top Walk

The walk is a light weight bridge architecturally-designed to wind through the canopy giving you breathtaking views across the forest.  The walk has a gentle gradient and is suitable for children and adults inlcuding wheelchairs and strollers.  And once you have picked your jaw up from this majestic experience, be sure to experience the floor below.  Imagine trees over 400 years old with circumferences beyond hugging.  Be sure not to miss the boardwalk to the Giant Tingle Tree, thought to be the world's oldest ecualypt.

To complete your day among the trees, you will want to continue to explore the great walking tracks and pristine white beaches of Walpole-Nornalup National Park.
