Valley of the Giants Tree Top Walk Day Tour
This tour is a great day out for everyone. The ageless living forest of the giant Karri trees where you walk across the tree tops and the Ancient Empire walk amongst gnarled old twisted Tingle Trees in a gloomy forest glade, are just part of an exploring experience of this lower south west of Western Australia!
A fabulous tour to experience some of Western Australia's natural treasures. Travelling through spectacular South West forests and lush farmlands your day is topped off by a walk through the canopy of towering old growth forest. Other highlights include a walk through the Ancient Empire and the opportunity to climb Diamond Tree Lookout.
After heading south through the town of Mandurah, we break at Donnybrook for morning tea (own expense). Regarded locally as the “apple town”, Donnybrook is famous for its apple and stone fruit orchards. Our brief stop for morning tea will allow you time to purchase some of the locally grown fruit (including oranges, apples, pears, nectarines, etc in season).
Leaving Donnybrook we relax into scenic touring through the rolling farmlands of the Blackwood River Valley and pass through the small historic pioneer towns of Balingup and Bridgetown. Moving south we are now entering Western Australia's only old growth forest area. Stopping at the Diamond Tree, one of the three towering trees in the district once used as a bush fire watch tower, we break for a picnic lunch. Those feeling like a challenge can attempt the climb to the wooden watch cabin near the top of the 51 metre tall tree.
Following lunch we continue on through stunning sections of karri forest, the world's third tallest tree, before reaching the Valley of the Giants. Here we experience the Tree Top Walk, a 400 metre long elevated walkway constructed through the canopy gradually reaching up to 40 metres above ground. The views of the forest below are sensational and bird watchers will be delighted with the opportunity to view native Australian birds close up. For those unsure about the elevation, a wonderful walk on ground level is available through the Ancient Empire, a remarkable pocket of Tingle Forest. These wide girthed trees, goblin like in appearance can grow up to 5 metres in diameter at the base. After a day immersed in nature it is time to enjoy afternoon tea before heading to William Bay, then continuing along the coast through some of Western Australia's most spectacular farming country to the quaint seaside town of Denmark.
From here we head inland and travel via Mt Barker and Kojonup where we stop briefly for tea (own expense) at The Kodja Place Visitors Centre, a contemporary tourist complex combining Aboriginal Culture and Rural Heritage to showcase the ingenuity and the spirit of life in “the bush”. Return to Perth arriving at approximately 10:30pm.
