The Dave Evans Bicentennial Tree is an exceptional tree. Now topped and fitted with a fire platform reaching 75 metres, this is a must-visit place. It is one of three trees that can be climbed. Thanks to WA's resistance to becoming a nanny state, members...More

I had heard about this so was curious to see it. I wasn't brave enough to climb it in the wet, cold day but looked great!

Worth a visit even if you don't intend to make the climb to the top. We enjoyed having a wander around the base and out and about, while the others climbed. Good views from the top.

The tree is great but I wouldn't recommend climbing it without the right equipment. What is great is the 10km loop trail that starts not far from the tree. I'd suggest doing it anti-clockwise so you get the really hilly bit out of the way.

THis was a great attraction in a very good park. We found all the WA parks really accessible, well signposted and great tracks and roads.

This is a massive massive tree. Good parking and wayfinding to get there. The tree is epic, we didn't climb as we didnt feel it was safe enough. Plenty of others and and make it up and down safley. Other beautiful old trees nearby

The daytime temp in January can be from 30 to 40 degrees. Hard to say. The attractions in the area are all basically centred around the forests. Lovely area.
