Luxury self-contained chalets

Right in the heart of the Walpole Wilderness area, close to Walpole townsite, a host of local scenic attractions and nature at your doorstep.

Walpole Wilderness Resort was established in 1998 on a privately owned rural property of 170 acres of Karri and Tingle forests, just 15 minutes north of Walpole, on the South Coast of Western Australia.

Each chalet has been designed so guests can appreciate the most magnificent panoramic views while maintaining their privacy.

Nature On Your Doorstep

Walpole Wilderness Resort is also located in the middle of the newly proclaimed Walpole Wilderness Area, a huge 378,000 hectares of Western Australia’s southern forest. This is an important part of an international biodiversity hotspot, home to threatened plant and animal species and others found nowhere else in the world.

Walk trails have been designed for exclusive use of our guests and take in some of our 170 acres of rare Tingle, majestic Karri and native wildflowers, from a short 1 to 5km walk.

Enjoy the Comfort and Tranquillity

Walpole Wilderness Resort has been designed for the discerning guest who appreciates comfort, style and country charm. In the main bedroom of each cottage there is a private heated spa with forest views and an ensuite shower.

Our chalets are perfect, whether a romantic escape for two or that family getaway.

Wrap up the family and head south for your summer holiday break!

Guest Book

  • Somewhat sadly, my wife and I are headed home tomorrow. This has been our second stay here and as someone else put it earlier in this Guest Book – this is a true gem of a retreat.

    This region of WA is one of the finest, most pristine wildernesses left in the world. I only hope it stays that way for our future generations …

    If it were not for Rhonda’s local knowledge, and my love of fresh Marron, we would have missed The Old Kent River Winery – a visit to that place is a must. Their boutique wines are world class – or better!

    For any fishermen and / or women – let me just say the opportunities even as a shore-based fisherperson here are marvelous ……”Ahem” (it all happens here in the late afternoon!!)

    Most importantly, the warmth and homeliness of this retreat is unparalleled. The peace and quiet, the serenity here is amazing.  Rhonda’s warmth and hospitality, taking that little bit of extra time with the guests, totally makes this place what it is.  Rhonda, you are a gem of a person, and as I’m sure you know, well loved by many in this community.

    Hope to be back sometime.

    Pristine Wilderness experience
  • Thank you for the weekend! It was truly amazing very relaxing in the spa. The kids really loved the idea of the kangaroos being so close to the chalet. Hope to get back some day. Well done with what has been achieved here.
