Hello again, friends!
There are few things in life that can be more refreshing than a treetop walk.
Since I just blogged about Singapore’s HSBC TreeTop Walk, I decided to share a very similar (but undeniably more breathtaking and magnificent) treetop walk that I experienced during my post-grad trip in Perth mid 2013. I can’t believe its been more than 1.5 years! That was my first overseas trip with my partner and it was quite honestly, one of the best trips of my life – everything about the trip was thoroughly relaxing – from the perfect weather to the laughter and song filled drives to some of the most scenic beaches. In this post I will be sharing a few pictures from the Valley of the Giants, Walpole TreeTop Walk – which is a 400km drive from Perth. We drove from Fremantle, had a lovely meal at a winery in Margaret River, then drove further down to Walpole where we lived in a beautiful cottage for a couple of nights.
I love that all the different species of plants and trees are extremely well labelled – it makes everything much more educational and interesting. The trees are all gigantic – which explains why the place is called Valley of the Giants. When we arrived, it was pouring – thankfully, the rain ceased after we spent an hour reading about the history of the park in the information room.
Next to the entrance of the Valley of the Giants, you will see a small route that leads you to the Bibbulmun Track. Once we stumbled on it, we knew that we just had to come back after a few years to embark on this trail. Hopefully some day soon!
