About this place
Opposite Knoll Drive, Hilltop Road winds through a very special red tingle and karri forest. Two kilometres along this one-way road will bring you to a spectacular lookout over the Frankland River, Nornalup Inlet and the Southern Ocean. Three kilometres after the lookout is the parking area of the Giant Tingle Tree. From here starts an 800m circular walk which leads down to the Giant Tingle Tree.
There is a boardwalk that protects the base of this Queen of trees. Tingles are the largest girthed eucalypt known in the world.
This is an opportunity to explore this wilderness, learning as you go. There is great information about the plants and animals of this native forest of the south coast.
Plan when to visit. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
