1. See the Valley of the Giants
The aptly named Valley Of The Giants (near Walpole) is home to a forest of gigantic old native trees – some more than 400 years old, and so big that historically, people would drive cars through gaps in their trunks. Explore the beauty of their treetops on a lightweight cabled walkway, which leads you high above the leafy canopy across a series of aerial platforms that gently sway back and forth with the breeze. Then, back on the ground, follow a twisting pathway through the forest floor to see their size and grandeur up close. As well as the famous karri trees native to the region, the valley is home to red tingle trees which, fittingly, often impart a sense of tingling wonder in those who come to see them.
