A remarkable section of the Bibbulmun Track that sees you explore the ancient Tingle Forest that is home to some of the biggest trees in the world and the famous Tree Top Walk. After two days in the forest you head towards the coast where you'll traverse the stunning limestone cliffs and walk on pristine white sands.


Stretching out over several days, there are inlet crossings (including the canoe trip across the Irwin Inlet), the fish and chips of Peaceful Bay, wildflowers galore in spring and some fantastic campsites offering world class views. Finish with one of the most varied days on the whole track that includes dunes, beach, coastal heath, farmland, a climb up Mount Hallowell, Karri forest, Jarrah forest and a walk along the Wilson Inlet before finishing at the Denmark River. A truly amazing section, this is one of the most talked about experiences of the whole track.
