The Nornalup Inlet is serene. Fed from the Deep and Frankland Rivers as well as the Walpole Inlet by which is it connected via a natural deep water channel, it is one of the most beautiful waterways on the south coast.
From The Knoll, the Nornalup Inlet is easily viewed from the platforms along the way. Picnic areas and toilets are available at "The Channels" parking area, about half way around the scenic drive.
If you've got the time, we recommend the Walpole Wilderness Eco Cruise for an amazing and informative time on the Walpole and Nornalup Inlets. A beautiful cruise across the Inlets and through The Channels.
