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.

Climbing this 68m Karri tree has to be done to be believed. Only just satisfying minimal safety requirements I suspect (which is why it's so good) makes for a nice adventure. Seriously, this is not to be taken likely but it's rewarding for the views and satisfaction of completing the climb.

Lovely picnic spot. Small bushwalk track behind the tree which is perfect for toddlers. Tree only suitable for climbing by adults.

We had visited the Gloucester tree and only found this one via street signs. Its down an unpaved but easily driven road and taller than the Gloucester tree with a climbing platform in the middle of the tree and at the top. Not as busy as the Gloucester tree. Definitely worth a visit.

This tree was truly impressive and we were practically the only people there late in the day. The road to get to this tree is not paved, but was in good shape when we did this road on October. I did not climb the tree, but it was nice to see it anyhow. This tree is along a scenic drive... More

My husband and I climbed the tree recently. By climbed I mean I made it to the half way platform and he to the top. It's the tallest of the 3 to climb at 65m which is pretty full on and scary! My husband isn't afraid of heights and loved it. I had fun going to the half way platform... More

This beatiful old fire tower is built on top of and into a (roughly) 400 year old Karri tree. This climb is exciting, a little challenging and definitely worth the climb for the amazing vista at the top. Only 1km from Mudstone Spa Retreat if your wanting a great nearby accommodation with a jacuzzi to relax those tired muscles after... More
