About Delaney Trail, Walpole-Nornalup NP
After passing the Coalmine Beach Caravan Park, this trail follows the shore of the Nornalup Inlet. The Delaney Lookout provides interpretation panels related to the inlet. After two kilometres the trail crosses the southwest highway to ascend among the karri and tingle trees to a viewpoint that provides views of the southern ocean. In spring the forest is alive with flowers and the vegetation change from the inlet to the forest is striking.
