About this park
Launch your boat and drop a fishing line in the Deep or Frankland Rivers – the bream await! Or, simply laze about in the tranquility of the inlets on a canoe in summer. There are peaceful places to discover and enjoy a refreshing swim, picnic or barbeque. Winter is the time for a challenge with a heart pounding paddle as the river waters swirl and rage.
There are many bushwalking tracks to enjoy, including the Bibbulmun Track. For mountain bikers, the Munda Biddi Trail passes through the majestic jarrah, karri and tingle forests.
Take a walk 40m high in the tops of the tingle trees on the Valley of the Giants Tree Top Walk. The ancient tingle forest in the heart of the Walpole Wilderness has many secrets to reveal – be sure to book a walking tour to find out more.
Drive to the many vantage points along the rugged coastline and enjoy the wildflowers when in season. Keep a lookout for whales on their migratory journey along the rugged southern coastline or spot your next surf break.

Plan when to visit. Read this safety information about bushwalking, swimming, surfing, fishing, paddling and kayaking. Consider traveling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
- Take care on rocks on the coast, as there is a risk of slipping and falling. Large waves can suddenly appear and wash over rocks.
- Don’t fish if it is too rough; know the weather forecast and tides before fishing. Always fish with someone else.
- Swimming at beaches and inland waterways can be dangerous. Be aware of strong rips, variable water depths, submerged obstacles and wet slippery surfaces. For your safety, do not dive or jump into water.
- Restricted access and warning signs are placed there for your protection and safety, and to protect the environment.
- Stay alert and supervise children at all times.
