Vast, natural landscapes await in Walpole and surrounds, with the ecologically significant Walpole Wilderness area protecting more than 363,000 hectares of national parks, nature reserves and forest conservation; that’s roughly the size of countries such as Luxembourg and Samoa.
Walpole is full of wilderness, so much so that it’s called the Walpole Wilderness. Here you’ll find mountains, ancient tingle forests and rugged coastal cliffs with wild Southern Ocean views.
The small township of Walpole offers a wide range of outdoor activities for visitors including swimming, boating, sailing, inlet cruises, fishing, bush walking, and climbing. The town is located on the Walpole Inlet; a small estuary connected through a narrow channel with the bigger and deeper Nornalup Inlet.
