Description

John Rate Lookout, which was named in honour of District Forester John Rate, who in the early 1950’s discovered a third species of tingle tree, now known as the Rate’s tingle (E.brevistylis). He was killed in the forest by a falling karri limb.

This site provides a welcome break from travelling and an ideal spot to have a cuppa or a picnic break.

Boardwalk and lookout
A short walk takes you to a timber boardwalk and platform lookout which provides a superb view over the Walpole and Nornalup Inlets Marine Park and the Southern Ocean. A ‘must’ stop for breathtaking photo opportunities.

Getting there
Located 5 km west of Walpole on the South West Highway.
