National Parks

Description

Dominated by an impressive granite peak, Mount Frankland National Park covers approximately 31000 hectares of karri, jarrah and tingle forest as well as expanses of treeless heathland. From the top of Mount Frankland you have 360 degree views of the Walpole Wilderness. The forests, wetlands and heathlands below you are home many unique plants and animals. See if you can track the course of the Frankland River as it makes its way to the coast. Mount Frankland is one of three sites that make up the Walpole Wilderness Discovery Centre. It marks the boundary between vast tracts of pristine bush to the north and the human-occupied areas to the south. Interpretive panels provide an insight into the wilderness through the eyes of a tower man - the person responsible for manning the fire lookout on top of Mount Frankland to scan for fires. The Mount Frankland Wilderness Lookout provides you with a spectacular view over the western side of the Walpole Wilderness from high above the forest floor. From this vantage point on the side of Little Mount Frankland it is a challenge to see any sign of human activity or habitation. Mount Frankland is about 30 minutes drive from Walpole.
