Unfortunately the day I was here was quite hot so I climbed up to the middle spot and decided to not go all the way as I was getting too sweaty. If you have a fear of heights this is probably not for you or...More

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.

Whilst a slight more strenuous and trickier climb than Gloucester I preferred this one due to the better views or was it just a better day? Not for children as some of the steps are a stretch and some slightly tricky nearer the top. Worth...More

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

Well done Western Australia for allowing people to make there own minds up about what they want to do. This is well worth visiting for a climb. A great sense of accomplishment and magnificent views from the top. Is it dangerous? I doubt it, but...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.

I cannot believe that no-one has died doing this climb. It is great that WA is not a nanny-state. This would be banned in every other state in Australia. My husband made it all the way to the top. He said he was petrified, until...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.
