This Giant Tingle Tree is special because it the oldest living eucalypt in the world it is THE Giant Tingle.
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.
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!
Filled by the Deep & Frankland Rivers, the dark waters of the Walpole Inlet empty into the Nornalup Inlet through the Channels. Visit Walpole Inlet
