This Bibbulmun Track day walk from the Giant Tingle Tree to Coalmine Beach is 6.1 km one way or 12.2 km return.
This walk is in the Walpole Wilderness Area, which boasts some of WA’s most spectacular landscapes, coasts, habitats and vegetation. Consisting of a number of national parks and reserves, the Walpole Wilderness Area safeguards areas of environmental, biodiversity and indigenous significance.
The day walk starts from the Giant Tingle Tree which, with a girth of 24m, is the largest-girthed living eucalypt known in the world. It then heads down to Hilltop Lookout, with its panoramic views of Nornalup Inlet and the Southern Ocean, then descends to Coalmine Beach on the shores of the Walpole and Nornalup Inlets Marine Park.
The Track passes through splendid karri and red tingle forest which comes alive in springtime with wildflowers.
This is one of many day walks possible on the Bibbulmun Track which stretches 1000km from Kalamunda on the outskirts of Perth, to the historic town of Albany on the south coast.
