Valley of Giants

Walpole has large forest cover and its vegetation mostly include karri, Marri and Tingle trees. These trees are giants, towering up to 75 meters tall with a diameter of 25 meters. Giants right? And there is an army of them.

You know whats even better, the authorities have built a massive suspension structure among these forest scaling up 40 meters height called The Tree Top Walk

The tree top walk is a series of lightweight steel trusses forming a 600 meter circuit over the valley.

After descending from the Tree Top Walk, we took another shorter walk: Ancient Empire Walk, amongst the red tingles. Some of these giants are over fifteen metres at its base.
