This Giant Tingle Tree is special because it the oldest living eucalypt in the world it is THE Giant Tingle.
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.
