Mt Franklin Walk 14th – 24th April 2009

The Mt. Frankland Walk features much of the amazing diversity of the South West; granite outcrops, breathtaking views of inlets and ocean, forests of Karri/Marri and Jarrah/Marri and Tingle/Karri and Banksia/Peppermint; Sheoak woodlands, Ti tree swamps, creeks and rivers, coastal heath and dunes and sheer cliffs overhanging the Southern Ocean.

Over ten days we will  walk over this country and experience its magnificent beauty and Camp at Three different Sites:


Rest Point C'van Park;

We are booked in to an area among Peppermint trees.
We will not be permitted to have a fire pit but there are concrete BBQ rings and a kitchen which we may have to share. We will be permitted to bring a fire drum if we block it above ground. Firewood  is not supplied.
Toilets and showers are available.

 Tingledale Hall;

Turn onto Valley of the Giants loop road about 17 Km east of Walpole.  Tingledale Hall is just east of the Hazelvale Road turnoff on the loop road
We have access to the hall kitchen but the locals will want to make their afternoon tea in there on Sunday when they use the tennis court.  Toilet available. We can use a concrete BBQ ring if we supply firewood.
