Bird’s eye view of Giant Tingle Trees

Walk among the tingle trees

If only trees could talk. Imagine the tales the ancient giant tingle trees in the Walpole-Nornalup National Park could tell.

King Charles I of England, who ruled from 1625 to 1649, was a pup about the time many of the gigantic tingle trees in the Valley of the Giants took root.

European settlers would have walked among the growing tingles while pioneering the southwest corner of Western Australia.

Four hundred years later, the trees stand about 60-metres tall, silently watching as mums, dads, children and grandparents take in bird’s eye views from the famous Tree Top Walk.

The suspended steel walkways, linked with circular platforms, form a 600-metre one-way loop that takes viewers into the forest canopy, about 40 metres above the ground.

The red tingle is one of the biggest trees in WA, measuring up to 16 metres around the base. They have relatively small root systems so develop large buttresses to support themselves.

Descending from the Tree Top Walk, a path leads to the Ancient Empire Walk where the forest understorey can be explored.
