Walpole is situated on the shallow Walpole Inlet. This inlet has a depth of no more than 1 metre and is fed by the Walpole River. There are good fishing opportunities from both the Town Jetty and Swan Bay Jetty (also a great spot to watch sunsets).
The Nornalup Inlet is both deeper (up to 5 metres) and larger. This inlet is fed by the Frankland River and the Deep River and is connected to the Walpole Inlet by a one kilometre long channel.
This inlet is permanently open to the sea that, combined with the rivers, creates a rich and diverse marine habitat. The Nornalup Inlet provides great opportunities for a whole host of activities including fishing, boating, sailing and swimming.
