  • Are you dog friendly ?

    Hi, generally no for a number of reasons. We have free-ranging chooks and wild kangaroos that visit daily, there are no fences or areas where dogs can be contained, and there is an active fox-baiting program in the surrounding National Park.

  • Is there a boat ramp at the Chalets, and if not where is the closest one Thanks Peter

    Hi Peter we have a sand track access to the river where a smallish tinny (4m or so) can be launched, but we usually recommend using the boat launch at Nornalup which is 2kms away. Thanks, Heather

Riverside Retreat

Established in 1996 and family-owned and operated, Riverside Retreat Chalets is uniquely situated within the Walpole-Nornalup National Park, alongside the banks of the Frankland River. The chalets are spaced out among 58 acres of native bush, remnant forest and grassy clearings. There is direct access to the river for fishing, canoeing or boating. Wild kangaroos visit the property most days, and there is abundant birdlife. Away from light and air pollution, on a dark, clear night the view of the Milky Way and other stars is incredible. We are central to all local attractions including the Tree Top Walk and the Valley of The Giants.

At the heart of the Walpole Wilderness and surrounded by the Walpole-Nornalup National Park is the small country town of Walpole. The area has much to offer - boating, sailing, fishing, swimming, bush walking, scenic drives, climbing and lots of natural beauty. We have amazing wildflowers, abundant birdlife and miles of unspoilt coastline to explore.
