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

I have to admit that I didn't manage the climb up to the top of the tree although it would have been quite cool to do so. It has been raining and the steel bars were cold to the touch. Climbing up was easier than...More

Not for the faint hearted! It was raining and windy, but despite recommendations not to go up, we of course did. 65m up steel pegs hammered into the trunk and a bit of wire cage around the edge for the pretence of safety. On a...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.
