This is one of many day walks possible on the Bibbulmun Track which stretches 1000km from Kalamunda on the outskirts of Perth, to the historic town of Albany on the south coast.

This walk is in the Walpole Wilderness Area, which boasts some of WA's most spectacular landscapes, coasts, habitats and vegetation. Consisting of a number of national parks and reserves, the Walpole Wilderness Area safeguards areas of environmental, biodiversity and indigenous significance.

The day walk starts from the Giant Tingle Tree which, with a girth of 24m, is the largest-girthed living eucalypt known in the world. It then heads down to Hilltop Lookout, with its panoramic views of Nornalup Inlet and the Southern Ocean, then descends to Coalmine Beach on the shores of the Walpole and Nornalup Inlets Marine Park. The Track passes through splendid karri and red tingle forest which comes alive in springtime with wildflowers.

The Bibbulmun Track offers a wide range of experiences. Enjoy a gentle stroll in the peace and beauty of the natural environment or an epic eight-week adventure camping out at the 49 campsites and enjoying the hospitality of nine communities along the way. Those that walk every step of the way can be registered as end-to-enders.

This guide is just a taste of the 1000km Bibbulmun Track. For other day walks or multi-day trips visit the Bibbulmun Track website.

Such an underrated part of the Bibbulmun Track. I absolutely loved the change from the depths of the cool forest to the warm sunny cliffs of the Wilson Inlet
