It's 68m tall. That is a long climb. Not for the faint of heart, but the view from the top is sublime, and the sense of satisfaction at still being able to do such a climb when in my 50s amazing. The first 20 feet...More

Similar climb to the Gloucester Tree lookout but is more recent. Another fire lookout essential in this forest of giant trees. You can climb if you are brave enough and strong enough. Wear good shoes.

Impressive tree used to spot bushfires. You can climb if you are not afraid of heights and you are very good at it.

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

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.
