Tall Trees Day Out
Hilltop Lookout, Giant Tingle Trees,
 Circular Pool and
Valley of the Giants - Treetop Walk


Travelling home via the southern loop we arrived at Walpole and decided to visit the big tree tourist spots along the way.

The first, detour was to the Hilltop lookout.  At this point your could start a few walks as the Bibbulmun trail is close-by.  We continued on to the Giant Tingle Trees and then on to Circular Pool and then  returned to the South Coast Highway.  Our second diversion was to the Valley of the Giants and Treetop Walk.   Overall a great day out!
