Walpole in the South of Western Australia is on the shore of a peaceful inlet off another inlet. The open sea is not visible from the town itself making it very sheltered. Walpole can also offer cruises on the river, either upstream or downstream.
Coalmine Beach on Nornalup Inlet, about three kilometres away.
Valley of the Giants
Fifteen kilometres away is the Valley of the Giants, a grove of huge Tingle well seen from the Tree Top Walk, a 600 metre walkway through the crowns of the tall trees forty metres above the ground below.
Walpole Nornalup National Park
Named after the two townships that sit either end of the park, there is over 18,000 hectares of bush here. Bushwalking is popular in here and you will stumble on plenty of deserted beaches as well.
