# Walk in the tree tops
The Valley of the Giants Tree Top Walk features a stunning walkway positioned 40 metres above the ground in the spectacular heights of the tingle forest canopy. The 600-metre walk is accessible and suitable for children of all ages, wheelchairs and strollers.
A walk trail links the Tree Top Walk to the Ancient Empire, where a sealed trail meanders across the forest floor between 400 year old red tingle trees. Interpretative information along the trail follows the story of the lost era of Gondwana.
Much of the plant life in this forest is unique to the south-west of Western Australia. Trees such as the tingle only occur in this small area and as such provide a window to the past. Some of the plants have origins that can be traced back 65 million years to the super continent Gondwana when Australia was joined with what are now Africa, India, Antarctic and South America.
This ancient and unique red tingle forest is a must-see during your stay in the south-west.
The Tree Top Walk provides thrills for visitors as well as opportunities for nature appreciation along with other national park attractions in the area. The others are the Mount Frankland Wilderness Lookout in Mount Frankland National Park, the Gap and Natural Bridge in Torndirrup National Park, and the Granite Skywalk in Porongurup National Park. These attractions are linked by the Getting high in nature travel itinerary.
