Hike Summary

Just seven kilometres from Walpole yet deep in the heart of outstandingly beautiful tingle and karri forest, the Giant Tingle Tree is the site of a huge fire-hollowed red tingle tree.

Opposite Knoll Drive, Hilltop Road winds through a very special red tingle and Karri forest. Two kilometres along this one-way road will bring you to a spectacular lookout over the Frankland River, Nornalup Inlet and Southern Ocean. Three kilometres after the lookout will bring you to the Car Park of the Giant Tingle Tree. From here starts an 800m circular walk which leads down to the Giant Tingle Tree and the boaRoad walk that protects it. At 24 metres, this is the largest, living, girthed eucalypt known in the world. Access is via a wooden Boardwalk around the base of this Queen of Trees. This is an opportunity to explore this wilderness, learning as you go. The signposts have great information about the flora and fauna of this native forest of the south coast. This Hollowbutt sign explains how the heartwood is burned from the trees and how the outer layer sustains these giant trees. Amazing! Expore the forest along the Giant Tree Loop Walk and enjoy a picnic amongst the beautiul tingle and karri forrest. This is a popular stop whist traveling along the Hill Top Scenic Drive east of Walpole which can be accessed from the South Coast Highway.  The road into the Giant Tingle Tree site is gravel and accessible by two-wheel drive vehicles. Not suitable if towing a caravan.
