Denmark Area Forests:

Denmark is the place where the Forest meets the Sea. Beaches and forests co-exist, interspersed with ancient rock formations. The Karri trees, straight and tall, love the area, and you will know you are in Denmark when you pass into these silvery giants.

Denmark's Harewood Forest along the Scotsdale Road Tourist Drive in Denmark is a delightful trail through the karri trees allowing you to learn the history of the logging industry (via small signs) as you go.

In the Southern Forests you will find some of the most ancient trees in the world. The Giant Tingle Tree canopy can be viewed close-up at the Valley of the Giants Treetop Walk at the Walpole Wilderness Discovery Centre west of Denmark. Continuing west toward Walpole is the home of The Giant Tingle Tree, the oldest lving eucalypt in the world.

Karri Trees on Mount Frankland

The region's vegetation includes both towering karri and giant tingle but also includes seven hundred native species of plants and trees, making it one of the top ten areas of terrestrial biodiversity on the planet. (Aahh! It's fresh, fresh air.)

The most popular Forest adventure on the South Coast is the Valley of the Giants Treetop Walk and Ancient Empires Walk through ancient tingle trees...

Walpole Area Forests:

Walpole is forest. That's why it is now called the Walpole Wilderness Area incorporating many national parks and southern forests. It's most easily seen from any one of the peaks throughout the region. Mount Frankland offers spectacular views to the horizons over rollling forests. If you like trees, you'll love the Walpole Area.

Walpole-Nornalup National Park occupies a unique high-rainfall corner of Western Australia and surrounds the towns of Walpole, Nornalup and Peaceful Bay. Part of the Walpole Wilderness area, it contains nearly 20,000 hectares of diverse vegetation, from towering karri and tingle forests to coastal heath and wetlands. Walpole-Nornalup National Park contains many pristine forests and areas with little evidence of human activity. ~ Dept of Environment and Conservation

As the Walpole-Nornalup National Park is mostly forested, there are forest walks in almost every area of the park. We particularly enjoyed the Rookwood Trail which loops under the fase of Mount Frankland (Mt Frankland National Park). The forested trail takes you through a (long) and windy path around the base through pristine native forests.
