3. VALLEY OF THE GIANTS 'TREE TOP WALK'
The Valley of the Giants is found in the Walpole Wilderness, where you follow a swaying 620m loop, 40m above the ground. Here the giants are red tingle trees, and many of these colossi have passed their 400th birthday. The tallest, ‘King Tingle’, is more than 65m high, but these huge eucalypts have a uniquely shallow root structure. To compensate, tingles have enormous gnarled bases, up to 15m in diameter, which help hold them upright.
- We then visit the Valley of the Giants ‘Tree Top Walk’, a 600 metre long elevated walkway through the forest canopy reaching up to 40 metres above ground.
