Giant Eucalypt Branches and Foliage

Beautiful, this giant and majestic tree is worth the walk. A boardwalk protects the tree and allows visitors the chance to see it's massive trunk close up.

Winding through this wilderness on a well kept and paved track makes the walk easy.

It is a 800 metre walk from the forested car park, to the Giant Tingle Tree and back again. It is a gradual descent to the home of the Giant Tingle, and a gradual ascent on the return journey, as you wind your way through the ancient canopy of tingle and karri.

Benches are placed at intervals with nooks for relaxing along the way. The large buttresses which spread from the base of the trees are tremendous.

Facilities at the car park include toilets and several information boards with interesting information. The car park is spacious and is nestled within the trees.

There is much to explore in the Walpole - Nornalup National Park

Underbrush

Hollowbutt Tingle Tree

Access is via a wooden boardwalk around the base of this Queen of Trees. This is an opportunity to explore this wilderness, learning as you go. The signposts have great information about the flora and fauna of this native forest of the south coast. This Hollowbutt sign explains how the heartwood is burned from the trees and how the outer layer sustains these giant trees. Amazing!
