Denmark's Walpole Wilderness Day Tours north of South Coast Highway
Fernhook Falls, Swarbrick Forest, Coalmine Beach, Hilltop Lookout, Giant Tingle Tree and Circular Pool

Fernhook Falls
Departing the Tree Top Walk, head north on Valley of the Giants Road, turn left into Hazelvale Road that becomes Bridge Road and right into North Walpole Road towards Mt Frankland and Deep River’s Fernhook Falls, particularly spectacular in winter. Trails meander through the forest and boardwalks along the river banks. An undercover gas BBQ, toilets and water are available. Back on North Walpole Road  to Walpole, on your right don’t miss the Swarbrick Forest. Follow the 500 metre walk through the old growth karri forest, past the 39 metre long mirrored Wilderness Wall of Perceptions, before encountering the art exhibits that present perceptions of a different nature. Some sculptures, larger than life-size, are suspended throughout the forest canopy.
Swarbrick Forest Art Loop provides one with spaces for introspective contemplation of the wilderness.

Swarbrick Sculpture

Coalmine Beach, Hilltop Lookout and Giant Tingle Tree.
While in Walpole, book a WOW Wilderness Eco Cruise, departing daily from Walpole Jetty, or take a guided tour with Naturally Walpole Tours. Leaving Walpole, head east on South Coast Highway, turn right into Coalmine Beach Road, a short loop drive past the Yacht Club Marina to the popular swimming and fishing beach and BBQ picnic areas. Cross over South Coast Highway to Hilltop Road, a one-way road north to Hilltop Lookout, with magnificent views of the majestic Frankland River. Nearby is the Giant Tingle Tree, large enough to fit a small car inside.

Circular Pool is on the Frankland River and is splendid in winter when the tannins in the water froth like a cappuccino. There are boardwalks along the river banks, walking paths through the forest and BBQ picnic area. Refer to the mud map

Back onto South Coast Highway, make your way South along the Southern Ocean coast and North East of the South Coast Highway.
