The Ancient Empire walk is an easy interpretative trail located at the well-known Valley of the Giants in the Walpole-Nornalup National Park. It meanders across the forest floor between 400-year-old red-tingle trees. Walking into the hollows of the giant tingle trees is an experience not to be missed!

The Ancient Empire is a 455 metre walk trail that takes you around and through some of the giant tingle trees including the most popular of the gnarled veterans, known as Grandma Tingle. The trail follows the story of the lost era of Gondwana. This ancient and unique red tingle forest is a must-see during your stay in the southwest! The Ancient Empire is only 18 kilometres from Walpole.

Plan your trip to include a fabulous free guided tour of the Ancient Empire, guided walks are offered daily outside the school holidays. Guided walks are free of charge, but may be subject to weather conditions.

There is now a new 300m accessible trail as part of the Ancient Empire Walk Trail.
