These massive tree roots belong to a giant tingle tree, which is the oldest living eucalypt in the world, growing in the tingle forest. A boardwalk protects the tree and benches are placed at intervals for those taking a more leisurely pace.
It is a 800 metre walk from the forested car park, to the Giant Tingle Tree and back again. It is a gradual descent to the home of the Giant Tingle, and a gradual ascent on the return journey, as you wind your way through the ancient canopy of tingle and karri.
