Another great tree to climb

Well if you are in the area it's worth visiting this and the Gloucester Tree. Both a good climb and different. Enjoyed climbing both trees

Lots of fun to climb to the top of this 68 metre tree. The whole family managed it, although the adult part of the family found it quite scary! The view was amazing from the top. It was a longer drive from Pemberton than the Gloucester tree so there were less people around to watch us climb and less "congestion"... More

This is a great climb as the views from the top is stunning but it's not for the faint hearted or kids, as they could easily fall! Don't let that put you off as the view from the ground, looking up at the gigantic trees, is pretty amazing and there is a few walking paths that are worth a look!

The purpose of our day trip to Pemberton was to climb this tree and the other two in the area - Diamond tree and Gloucester tree. This tree is by far the tallest and we climbed it last. The rungs can be quite far apart but I am only short and managed without feeling in danger. The last few meters... More

one of the most unique outdoor attraction in Pemberton. It is the highest 75 meter fire look out tree. Easy climb for those who love outdoor and hiking. it has basic protective wire around but no safety harness or hook. THere is a mid way stop from bottom around +/- 8min climb before heading to the top. The view is... More

Wow, how amazing are these trees? Their sheer size and grace is wonderful and the ability to climb them using fairly original methods, wobbly-leg making!!! Go on, try to climb if you dare. Apparently the views are rewarding but scaredy mum wouldn't know!!!!!

I would think unique to this area an the first I have seen or heard of, what was once a fire spotting perch, and being able to climb it on not so 'work safe' metal pegs. Not difficult but need a moderate fitness as a fair gap between rest spots in a mostly continuous climb, a perch just over a... More

This tree is so tall I felt dizzy just looking straight up! But a beautiful tree and Hubby and 10yr old daughter loved the climb. I enjoyed reading the information boards and wandering through the trees at the bottom!

This is not an experience for the faint-hearted people. It is pretty high and pretty scary both on the way up and on the way down. But I would do it again when i am in the area. Make sure you have proper shoes and maybe bring bike-gloves. Worth visiting!

The Dave Evans Bicentennial tree in Warren National Park Western Australia has been pegged for climbing to celebrate Australia's bicentenary in 1988. It was built like a fire lookout tree but never used as one. It is a tourist attraction for daredevils.
