This tree is a bit more challenging that the Gloucester tree I’ll say that. It’s like it never ends! My thighs ached for about 3 days after but was so worth it.

I had originally come to Pemberton after being told of the Gloucester Tree, but was glad I happened upon the Dave Evans Bicentennial Tree which is actually significantly taller. It was pegged for climbing in 1988, and I can only assume that it's named after...More

Great experience . There's a rest station half way up if you don't want to climb all the way to the top.

Go for it - test your ability to scale via a great ladder to see the view of the valley - worth every sinew of effort to get to the top - not for the faint hearted but the reward is for the brave.

I got to this tree first, so I climbed it first...probably not best for someone with a fear of heights. I think it's the tallest of the trees and the rungs are fairly far apart, so you can look straight down through them and imagine...More

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

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.
