The famous Bibbulmun Track passes through the Walpole-Nornalup National Park on its 1,000 kilometre route from the Perth hills to Albany. There is camp sites dotted throughout the park.
The beautiful rocky coastline is lined by glorious beaches and backed by lush forest. The National Park also hosts four rare species of Eucalyptus, including the Rates Tingle (Eucalyptus cornuta), Red Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus jacksonii), Red Flowering Gum (Eucalyptus ficifolia) and the Yellow Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus guilfoylei).
The National Park is also home to the Valley of the Giants, where you can see the Giant Tingle Trees. There is an interesting information centre at the Tingle Shelter from where you can start a couple of fantastic walks through and below the tree tops.
