The Walpole-Nornalup is actually two bodies of water joined together, that have a total area of about 16 square kilometres. The Walpole Inlet in the north is the smaller and shallower of the two. A 1km-long channel connects it to the much larger and windier Nornalup inlet to the south, which is open to the Southern Ocean.

The hills, paperbark swamps and karri trees surrounding Walpole Inlet provide it with protection from the wind. Its calm, dark tannin-rich water is quite a contrast to the massive, windswept and choppy Nornalup Inlet beyond The Channels.

The Walpole & Nornalup Inlets are a Marine Park and are populated with seagrasses, seaweeds, shellfish, and a large range of fish and waterbirds. Even large animals such as dolphins, marine turtles and tropical manta rays have been known to turn up in the marine park.
