Welcome to Walpole
The essence of Walpole can best described as spectacular forests and waterways that sit against a breathtaking coastal backdrop. The town is bordered by stunning beaches, rugged coastlines, long curving rivers and ancient forests that quite literally reach for the sky.
Walpole is an oasis. With a perpetually relaxed feel it exudes a sense of calm. This calmness is obvious in Walpole's residents who proudly boast about their lifestyle.
Sitting right on the entrance to two marine parks it's no wonder Walpole is a boaties' heaven. Cruise around and watch pelicans glide over the water and see how the forest environment has adapted to life by the sea. The waters are also classed as on of the best sailing destinations in the world. There are several freshwater rivers with both still and white water to enjoy. Throw in a line, glide along in a canoe or test your mettle on the rapids.
The inlets make boating and estuary fishing extremely popular. Dolphins visit the inlet regularly and you can view all this from your boat.
