If you have been to Yosemite or Secoya Park, you will not be impressed. It's cool to see the giant tree and take a picture in the middle of it, but that's about it.

Ignoring the tree itself for a moment the area is beautiful. Much like most areas around here but there was something magical. Perhaps the cacophony of beautiful and plentiful bird song. Now to the tree.... My partner who is self admittedly afraid of heights, tried a bit of the climb and then decided against it. The metal spikes are sturdy,... More

A really stunning place, tarmac road most of the way and good quality track to the car park. As ever there is ample parking and there are toilets available. The entry is the norm for the parks (currently $12 for a private vehicle) and relies on honesty out of season when there are fewer rangers about, take plenty of change... More

We climbed the three look out trees and found the Bicentennial Tree to be the best. It was easy enough to reach the platform but the rest of the climb was quite steep but manageable. If not comfortable with heights this is probably not the best tree to tackle.

After a short drive through the Warren national park we arrived at the Bicentennial tree. I did not climb the tree, but found it very impressive, and could well imagine the view from the top.

Gorgeous climb in the Warren national park. Was great to have the option of the platform half way for those that were not confident to head to the top.

Towering 75m above the forest floor gives climbing trees a whole new meaning. My kids aged 12 & 14 loved it so much that they nagged me everyday to go back. Make sure they wear proper shoes and a rain coat. Do not try to pass, but wait until other visitors have descended.

Really interesting history and innovative use for the tree. You will need to be brave to do the climb to the top, though the view from the top would be magnificent.

I've been to the Bicentennial Tree a couple times now, but haven't yet made it past the first platform. Maybe next time... The tree is the tallest of the three climb-able trees in the area, reaching the height of 75 metres. For the less adventurous, the first platform is at 25 metres. Definitely wear appropriate comfortable shoes. If you're camping/touring... More
