Giant Tingle Tree Walpole

Giant Tingle Tree Walk

Walpole-Nornalup National Park

Directions - From the centre of Walpole head east on South Coast Highway. Look for the signs for the Giant Tingle and turn left onto Hilltop Rd (one way). Follow this up the hill to the car park for the Giant Tingle Tree.

The Hike - Enjoying a day exploring the sights and sounds around Walpole, I finished up at Fernhook Falls and thought I'd head back into town to grab some supplies for the evening. With still plenty of light left in the day and the predicted storms not yet here, I figured that a return trip to the Giant Tingle Tree wasn't a bad idea. I was first here in 2016 for a family holiday and again in 2019 when I walked through on a Walpole to Denmark section of the Bibbulmun Track but wanted to return and get a refresh of photos for this page. I stopped at the Hilltop Lookout on the drive up the hill where a cleared stretch of the forest provides a frame for staring out towards the Nornalup Inlet and further to the Southern Ocean. It's a pretty cool spot to stand and admire the landscapes below.
