Walpole Wilderness Discovery Centre

Valley of the Giants Road, Nornalup WA 6333

The Walpole Wilderness Discovery Centre (WWDC) is an exciting tourism product in the South West of Western Australia. It represents a multi-million dollar investment by the State Government into eco-tourism and is comprised of three sites including: The Tree Top Walk; Swarbrick Art Loop in the Mount Frankland South National Park; and Mount Frankland which features the newly completed Mount Frankland Wilderness Lookout, arrival shelter and visitor facilities. The WWDC focuses on different perspectives of the vast, natural and wild landscapes of the Walpole Wilderness to create inspiring visitor experiences. It has been designed and built to be the jewel in the crown for nature based tourism in Australia's South West and is a key tourism component for the newly formed Great South West Edge, one of Australia's sixteen national landscapes. The WWDC features unique interpretive displays at all sites where visitors can learn what makes the wilderness special. While the Tree Top Walk is an established product, it is the unique blending of this renowned product with the new to create a synergistic outcome where the total experience is more than the sum of its parts.

Conspicuous Beach

via Nornalup Beach Road, Nornalup WA 6333

The spectacular coastline at Conspicuous Beach in the state's south is extremely popular for fishing and surfing. Whilst the rough waters are not recommended for swimming, surfers will take delight in the breakers off the coast. Take a walk along the boardwalk that follows alongside the beach and leads up to a viewing platform on Conspicuous Cliff. You may be fortunate enough to see whales gliding through the ocean on their migratory path. The panoramic ocean views are truly magnificent. Keen walkers can appreciate the area by walking a section of the Bibbulmun Track which passes by Conspicuous Beach on its journey from Kalamunda, near Perth to Albany. Known as one of the world's great long distance walks, stretching nearly 1,000 kilometres, it offers many gratifying views. If your visit brings you to the Walpole area over the summer months, you will be rewarded with the impressive display of flowers from the Red Flowering Gum trees. Conspicuous Beach is located 20 minutes east of Walpole and five and half hours drive south of Perth.

Peaceful Bay

Peaceful Bay, Peaceful Bay WA 6333
Peaceful Bay by name and by nature, this white-sand beach is sheltered from the Southern Ocean swell, with clear turquoise waters ideal for swimming, snorkelling, diving and fishing. It's a chilled-out seaside holiday spot just 40-minutes' drive from Denmark, or a five-hour drive from Perth. You can also take a well-earned rest-stop here if you're making the epic journey on foot along the Bibbulmun Track - one of the world's greatest long-distance trails. If you just fancy a leisurely walk, join the Bibbulmun Track at Peaceful Bay and enjoy the rugged south coast scenery on the way to Point Irwin. In spring, the dunes and coastal bushlands are carpeted in the colourful blooms of wildflowers. If you prefer to explore on four wheels, there are several unsealed tracks leading through the Walpole-Nornalup National Park. Head for Conspicuous Cliff with a pair of binoculars, between July and October, and watch for spouting, breaching and tail-slapping whales as they pass by on their annual migration. For a stay in the bay, choose from caravan sites, camping grounds and basic chalet accommodation.

Nornalup

Nornalup, Nornalup WA 6333
Dwarfed by tall karri and tingle tree forests, the small village of Nornalup is a big drawcard for nature lovers. To the east, the Valley of the Giants Treetop Walk takes you above the tingle trees of Walpole-Nornalup National Park, and to the south, the Conspicuous Cliff lookout gives you a view of the great annual whale migration. From Albany, it's a scenic one hour and 20 minute drive west to reach Nornalup. If you're heading down from Perth, you'll need to allow about five hours. Once you hit Walpole, it's another 15 minutes' drive to the east. You're also just 10 minutes' drive away from one of the best treetop views on Earth - the Valley of the Giants Treetop Walk. Inspired by the tall tingle tree forest of the Walpole-Nornalup National Park, this is the first sky-high walk trail of its kind. Climbing 40 metres into the canopy, the walkway affords magnificent vistas of this ancient forest before descending to the Ancient Empire Walk, where you can gaze up at 400 year old giants. The surrounding Walpole-Nornalup National Park covers 18,116 hectares of the South West with karri and tingle forests stretching to the Southern Ocean. Here, you may encounter some of the 698 native species of flora and fauna that call it home, including kangaroos and quokkas, honey possums and bandicoots, honeyeaters and parrots. Through its heart runs the Frankland River and the famous long distance Bibbulmun Track, each leading you on an incredible wilderness-to-ocean adventure. On the river, you'll enjoy boating, canoeing, fishing and swimming. On the walking trail, you'll get to take in the wilderness one step at a time. Take the drive to Conspicuous Bay in spring and you'll be dazzled by the only known stand of native red-flowering gum trees in Western Australia. From the cliffs, you'll also witness one of the greatest migrations on Earth, as the whales make their journey to their calving grounds. Nornalup caters for those who are looking for refreshments or a bed for the night with tearooms, restaurants, chalets, bed and breakfast accommodation and a caravan park. ...
