The Valley of the Giants Tree Top Walk is an internationally recognised nature-based tourism attraction located between Denmark and Walpole in the heart of the Walpole Wilderness.

This ancient and unique red tingle forest is a must-see. Some of the forest plants, including the ancient giant tingle trees, have origins that can be traced back 65 million years to the supercontinent Gondwana when Australia was joined with what are now Africa, India, Antarctic and South America. Much of the plant life in the tingle forest is unique to the south-west of Western Australia, and the the tingle trees are endemic to a limited area surrounding the town of Walpole.

 

Tree Top Walk

The Valley of the Giants Tree Top Walk features a stunning walkway positioned 40m above the ground in the spectacular heights of the tingle forest canopy. The 600-metre walk is wheelchair and pram accessible.

 

Ancient Empire

A walk trail links the Tree Top Walk to the Ancient Empire, where a sealed trail meanders across the forest floor between 400-year-old red tingle trees. Information along the trail follows the story of Gondwana and the Mesozoic era. With their huge hollowed out trunks, the red tingle trees are just as spectacular when viewed at ground level as they are high up in the forest canopy.
